K3LR will procure "some sort of transcripts?"  hihi.  As usual, KE3Q will
do his best -- they call me "stenoman," or "Hemlock Bond, agent
double-oh-ampersand."   (00&)

Subject: WPX Rules
Message-ID: <Pine.SUN.3.90.950421182148.26325D-100000 at>

This is something that I would like to see changed in the WPX Rules. I do 
not like to to see any contest really that a contact counts something 
oneway and nothing the other way. You can use a NA prefix as a multi but 
not as any points. This makes it very confusing for a non contester 
getting started. I realize that these rules were probably written back 
when the NA prefix was probably W,K,WA, and WB. But since then things 
have changed greatly.

To prove my point, I took my contacts for Sweepstakes and ran them back 
through CT in WPX contest. Very interesting thing showed up. In '95 WPX I 
worked SSB Low Power all bands and worked 398 prefixes. I ran SS under 
the catagory and I had 249 prefixes in it. I made 600 contacts in WPX and 
775 in SS. To me I think we are missing were the real prefixes are. I am 
not sure the total number in the NA but I do know it is changing 

Might be a thought for changing the rule or maybe a new contest even. It 
would be like SS but instead of states it would be NA prefixes. 

Just a thought I would bring up and see what it stirs up. I would email 
CQ directly but do not have any addresses. Have all the ARRL ones. Also 
feel free to flame me if you wish, why I don't know, but I am a retired 
firefighter with 26 years. I can handle the heat.
