Clubs can decide which criteria they want to use. The center of the circle is at the discretion of the club, and can be changed. It all comes down to "who gets included, and who gets left out based on where the center is located".

For contest purposes, do we not define our club territory (and report to ARRL) as a circle from a designated center and not by ARRL Section?
Thanks, Bob N5EPA
