>>>>Bob:  I think the history of this is that it was done to encourage 
expeditions for the contests to North American island countries in the 
Caribbean.  It did that and their being there made those
multipliers available to everyone.  It would be hard to change the rule 
now that so many people have so heavily invested in stations in the 
North American
Caribbean.  Welcome back to contesting.  Maybe we worked this weekend 
from PJ4A (a Caribbean  multiplier in  South America).  If not, hope to 
work you again soon while we have good conditions to your part of the 
world.  Keep up the good work.  73, John, K4BAI.
Well John I just can't believe that all those Caribbean stations would take 
down their towers and go home should they be required to play by the same rules 
as everyone else. If I were competing in NA I certainly wouldn't care to look 
at my score in the rankings knowing it was handicapped.  73 bob
