I agree with this, which is why the ARRL DX has never been one of  my 
favorite contests.  It lacks the excitement of a true world-wide  contest.  It 
basically an North Atlantic rim-Caribbean-South American  contest.  
That being said, I did participate seriously in the ARRL CW this  year.  Go 
And the same thing is true of me for the WAE CW and Phone.   Not only is it 
boring, but they want QTCs too.  Are people never  satisified?
One reason I like RTTY contests is that virtually all of them are  
world-wide, everyone works everyone on all bands.  This applies to the ARRL  
and the WAE too, interestingly.  WAE RTTY participants still  want QTCs, 
I could go on but I won't.  I'll be merciful.

Because just working you lot is boring.
