Yeah, right !  When was the last time you (or anyone else who normally lives 
near the east coast) operated from west of 90 degrees W longitude and came even 
close to winning the SOAB high power category in any major contest ?  Try it 
sometime for a learning experience.

I guess those of us who consistently put in major efforts and operate from W5, 
6, 7, or 0  are simply 3rd class lids, or we would have occassionally won.
