I wonder if I have to move to the US to find this reflector interesting....

Maybe the rest of the world (apart from the US) need to create our own
contest reflector?

Geez Mats,

Isn't a US domestic contest like Sweepstakes much like CQWW from Europe ?  You 
all pretty much work each other and working the US is an afterthought! There is 
proof of this if you download public logs from CQ for the guys with big scores 
in EU and North Africa. Usually 70% of their QSO's are with other EU stations 
inside an area smaller than the continental US. You consider that a DX contest? 
Every year I waste time calling EU stations on 160/80 meters when I operate 
from the Caribbean. Maybe CQ should NOT allow EU to work each other for any 
points and maybe you would have a different opinion about it? The one thing you 
do have going for you is you have some youth interested in CW. Here in the US 
it's mostly old guys ! :}
