In my opinion that rule needs to be eliminated. Or modified. This contest
needs more participation, even 1 point would do something, DX to DX. Why
not give DX stations 7 points for districts 6, 7, & 0?
I don't do ARRL anymore because not a lot of dx stations do it either as
far as I can tell. It's not gratifying.
