Finding a way is easy - create a handicap, just like in golf. Average out 
scores of different areas over many contests over many years and come up 
with a multiplication factor. Adjust the factor every year as more scores 
become available. As time goes by the factors would become more and more 
accurate, and could even be applied retroactively if desired. Easy.

The hard part is getting the stations in the geographically advantaged 
areas to go along.
Every one else would think it's a good idea. :-)
