You are not only thinking outside the box, I think you put the box out for 
recycling. Are you going to create a 'worked all nets' award? A check in to 
the 'net' isn't a QSO with all participants. What award administrator will 
accept that kind of contact for credit? Nobody that I can think of.

Be patient, the crush will calm down after the holidays. It's like rush hour 
on the freeway right now. :)
