  A simulation on distance scoring using Spring Sprint data has beenfinalized. The paper can be found at: https://sites.google.com/site/vhfdistancescoring/home/reports This simulation showed that single-band distance events couldidentify and score stations which generated longer distance contacts. In amulti-band distance event, a variety of band weightings could alsoproduce a balance between upper and lower band activity. The datacontained little Es in which to test, but 2 EME stations were included in thedata stream. Various zone schedules were attempted, and while they weresomewhat workable, none of the schedules were completely successful inbalancing very long QSO’s with the more typical and shorter contacts stemmingfrom tropo conditions. Data is available on two September VHF QSO Parties, and futuresimulations will look into whether the band conditions of that event or other zone schedules aresuitable for distance-scoring methods.  More information and discussions of the Distance Scoring WorkingGroup can be found at: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/VHFDistanceScoring/info KevinW9GKA
