The rules say "Heavy Metal Rally is a night for friendly AM QSO's" but
the number of points you gather is directly dependent on the number of
QSO's. There is no trophy or additional points for how many listeners you
might put to sleep while engaging in old buzzard type transmissions.
There are 364 other days you can engage in "ragchew" type AM contacts.
