Subject: CIS PREFIXES TODAY
Message-ID: <AAKWWAjeO7 at chal.chel.su>
Since I have been getting many requests on new CIS prefixes
I decided to publish it here, so that everybody cud see.
This information is not official and not full. I got it from
unofficial source at CRC of Russia (even there they don't have
official listing as yet).
The new system is supposed to be put in force since the 1st of Jan.94.
Russia UA,UB,UC,UD,UE,UF.UG.UH,UI,all R series and 4K
Pse note, that my source skipped UV & UW series. Is it gonna be retained
w/Russia? Supposedly it went to Ukraine. Am I gonna stay with
my lovely UW9AR? Will see in a while...
In the listing above I missed UD - formerly Azerbaijan cuz my source forgot
to tell me and I forgot to ask... it is Jan.04.94 only one day after NY
celebrations and two days b4 orthodox church XMAS... in Russia we are all
off till Jan.10.94.

Subject: Improving contest participation
Message-ID: <199401041551.AA26068 at teal.csn.org>
I enjoyed Willy's (UW9AR) comments about contesting, but I think a summary
of my position, which is based on 1) reflector input, 2) private email,
3) on the air discussions, 4) telephone conversations, 5) and my own bias,
is in order, so that the real issues are debated. This is primarily
addressed to the CQWW, but represent a general feeling towards the ARRL DX
contest as well.
1) No changes in the contest rules.
2) There is a general feeling in the mid and western parts of the US
(and possibly in other countries that cover more than one time zone)
that there has been an under-recognition of outstanding efforts.
3) For countries that cover multiple zones, scores should be broken out
by zones. Still keep the top USA boxes, but just add a few more
boxes to include top scores by zones.
4) CQWW built in an attempt at equalization with the 2 points for North
American qsos. The reasons for this may want to be reviewed
to see if they are still valid.
5) Mercifully, there is little to no support for any equalization of scores
to take into account differences in propagation, antennas, skills, or
anything else one can imagine.
George (W0UA) and myself have assummed the task of keeping US (by call area)
and Canadian records for the major contests and these will be published in
NCJ. We do not plan to extend it to other areas but encourage local groups
to do so. And I am (personally) very supportive of the various efforts that
have been published on internet of the top ops by region, district, zone,
or whatever, over multiple contests as well as by individual contest. I find
these quite interesting and revealing. Keep up the good work.
The breakdown of the (1992) CQWW Top 5 by Zone by Bruce WA7BNM is very
revealing. There seems to be a big decline in the west coast multi-op entries
compared to the "glory days". Participation incentives (mugs, pins, brooms,
etc) have worked well, but I still feel that recognition in the published
results is still the best incentive.

K1AR's message indicates a willingness to address these points, my message is
just intended to show how little is being asked for, and to quell any rumors
that I (we) are seeking changes in the contests, only in the reporting of
