Although it is difficult to work Russian stations (UA0 excepted) from my
location in southwest USA, I find it very strange that the hours of the
contest operation do NOT include any night time hours at my location.
The sun sets at 0010 UTC at my location this time of the year. Consequently
there is absolutely no opportunity to effectively participate in this
My question is; If this is a contest inviting worldwide participation, why
is there not at the minimum a full 24 hours of competition period?
