But that's just the point (pun intended).  The main objective of the event 
is to promote AM by creating a heavy-metal presence on the band with 
"friendly AM QSO's".  Gathering points is secondary for most participants. 
Many of those who participate don't even bother to submit reports to gain 
the points.
