Re: Send in your score

I'm not a big contester but it always brings a smile to my face when someone pushing 500w answers my QRP CQ.......... so while I wouldn't think "Extra Credit" is needed I surely would think at least the 1 point is warranted, after all the contact was made by the 4S Op in good faith and it's the Op ability that made it happen.

I almost forgot to send this reminder.  I will be tabulating the results
tomorrow afternoon/evening and want to make sure everyone has had a
chance to record their score.

There is some discussion about modifying the rules for the sprint,
specifically regarding having QSOs with stations that are QRO.  The
rules will definitely NOT be changed this late in the game.  I need to
think about this a bit before making suggestions.  For one thing, any
changes to the scoring would have to be coordinated with Diz, W8DIZ, who
is graciously hosting and has programmed the sprint rules
into his website.  Thanks, Diz.

In the meantime, if anyone has suggestions on possible sprint rule
improvements, specifically regarding QSOs with non-QRP stations, drop me
a line.

Also, looking back at my records, I notice that I've been running the
sprint since late 2013.  I'm seriously thinking of "retiring" from this
job after 2022.  If anyone is interested in taking over, let me know. 
The pay is great (hi).
