As to WPX, a 4U1 callsign is clearly an advantage in a Prefix contest.  It

It takes a lot of chutzpah for a guy who has the advantage in major DX contests of a VT QTH to complain about someone else having an advantage! The great thing about WPX scoring rules is that the playing field is much less tilted toward the Atlantic basin, to the extent that hams elsewhere are at least in the same contest!
