I am assuming that 4U1WB has to operate from the World Bank. There is
probably limited antenna space and a high noise level. Still it's probably
fun to operate with that callsign and I see nothing wrong or unfair about
doing so. Like most of us, Masa has no chance of beating a station in PEI
so indeed contesting in general is unfair. We all know this and operate
because we enjoy it.

Masa, Why don't you just get a W3 call sign and avoid this mess?  You will
never be competitive in ARRL DX having to explain who you are.  I am sure
that many DX stations would be very happy to work a W3 from DC.

As to WPX, a 4U1 callsign is clearly an advantage in a Prefix contest.  It
does  not seem fair to me that a 4U1 can compete equally with a W1 in the
WPX contest.
