So what, actually, constitutes a "prefix" in CQWW WPX? Is is letters and
first number (as in KR4)? Is it letters and all numbers in sucession (as in
V47)? What unusual prefixes are allowed as a suffix for the standard old US
(such as WR6R using /WH7)?
Thanks for help.

Subject: Tower bolts
Am I missing something in all this hubbub? With the downforce from three
sets of guys, plus the weight of the tower, rotator and antennas, I can't
see that there's a significant risk that a tower section will shear even a
hardware-store bolt and pull out of the next section down. Obviously, it's
good practice to use decent bolts, and make sure they're fairly tight, but
going to specialty fasteners strikes me as unnecessary overkill.
