Of course, there's nothing that says you can't participate in ours from
Finland!  (well, maybe the propagation<grin>)

I think this is one of the best features of Sprint.

In fact...  while I'm not suggesting we change the Sprint rules, I think
it would be interesting to try an even *shorter* contest.  One hour
would probably be the shortest reasonable format.  

I think it would also be interesting to try an extremely *long*
contest.  For example, allow a total of 24 hours of operating time
during a 30-*day* period.
