Re-read my post Ken. We actually made a lot more than 300 USA to USA 
QSOs, 613 to be exact. As I said, it was 19% of our total QSOs made.

And yes, I would expect to make more QSOs if the 1 point rule was 
implemented. But since it would effect everyone equally, I don't see 
any major scoring changes shifting to the mid-west. It would just 
eliminate a real contest oddity where you are forced to work USA to 
USA QSOs and not get any value from it other than 6 multipliers.

I can't ethically refuse to work those people since I may be a mult for them.

73, Richard
