WHOA!  EL98 here.  I've never been on that side of a pileup!  Wouldn't know how to behave.  Guess I'd have to skip that one.

Probably slept through significant decimal places.  Since the old HP41 rounded at a much lower point; NASA got us to the moon with less precision, as do most of the commercial spreadsheets and CAD/ Finite Element Analysis Programs.  In fact many round at 12places Oh by the way, but an interesting concept to ponder.

Good idea to invite non-members into the contest.  They will see what fun it is and maybe join.

The exchange for non-members could be 599 and a serial number (001,002 etc) in place of a member number.
EPC does that and it seems to work.

I just thought of something (watch out!)  How about every year have a sprint where new members count 3 points (those that have joined in the last calender year), members count 2 points, and non-members 1? Just an idea.  I know we have a contest just about every month, but let's think it out.

IMHO,   making contests open to non=members would encourage the to become members.   Much like 10-10 does by allowing 2 pts  for members, but only 1 pt for non-members. Doing this would make non-members feel as though they mattered.  I've always thought that "members only" contests were too exclusive and somehow held membership numbers down.
 
Just my opinion for what it's worth.

Macros for Flavors

Jim Howard
 

Guys,

I’m thinking about making up some macros just for the 31 Flavors contest. In the rules it is suggested to call CQ with the invitation to switch to another flavor (psk mode). Another way might be making up some macros to ask the current contact to move to another mode for another multiplier. How exactly might that be carried out with a series of macros? You should be able to have another macro switch the mode then send the exchange. Ideas please!

Does this "level the playing field" ? 

Actually, I really don't think there is any such thing as a "level playing field" in ham radio because there are just too many variables in equipment, antennas and propagation. The only way that the playing fields could be leveled is if everyone was at the same station location.

Here another suggestion that everyone will hate:

How about one where the grid number is the number of points you
receive for each contact ? I'm in EN52 and you should get 52
points for working me. Use s/p/c's as multipliers as everyone ends
up with a pile of points !
