If you are big on contesting why not get a 5 call to match your QTH.
That's the way it used to be, you move, you get a new call. Too bad
it's not the rules anymore. I hate it when a rare DX in AF or EU asks
for the East Coast to stand by to work a few West Coast stations, asks
for W6 or W7. He then comes back to a W6 who gives him a 59 from FL
or some other East Coast QTH. Not fair to the REAL W6 and W7 stations.
