He also awarded 'points' for SWL reports, including best-sounding
audio and so on. Nothing you can do to garner those points beyond
having a strong, pleasant sounding signal on the air, heard and
reported by many. He's been pretty insistent about it being a 'rally'
vs contest, with the WINNER being more like a 'best of show'.  It's
true that you'll always have a few who will trample you to get there
first, but I don't think that was Bill's intention. For further
clarification though, I'd suggest looking up some of his posts on the
subject on amfone.net, Ken.
