[CQ-Contest] ARRL 160 & DX Particpation

I think the ARRL 10 Meter Contest makes for a better 
comparison than ARRL DX. US/VE works everyone, DX 
works US/VE.

In the 10m contest, DX is recognized with a 
few "boxes". Not so in ARRL 160m.

DX stations are welcome to participate fully in ARRL 
160 (they can be worked as QSOs AND they count as 
mults) and so, IMO, they deserve recognition in 
a "box".

Those that think otherwise might be better off 
suggesting that DX not be a "real" part of the 
contest, not count as mults - relegated to the same 
status as non-NA stations in the NA sprints - QSOs
