Excellent idea, Tom. Continue the current Stew Perry Distance Challenge
(SPDC) as is and add a late winter (March Equinox or there abouts?)
companion contest with the additional rule you propose. Name it SPDxC.
Make the minimum distance for points 3,000 km (~6 Grid squares)instead of
miles. Let everyone work everyone for fun and other awards, but the scoring
software simply omits those that are not up to minimum distance for points.
I LIKE IT!!! Boring Amateur Radio Club; are you ready to handle another
