I wonder why I never hear EI5HE in contests?      :-)

Sorry to say but, there are many USA calls in the data file. I looked at 
it with PC Tools text viewer and even saw a couple of local guys (NX0I 
and AB0X to name a few).

Actually, where I really notice the advantage is when I'm signing W3LPL, 
but maybe those antennas have something to do with it, too?  :-)

Sometimes, I think the 7 call helps attract EU stations, but a lot of 
them try to put me in MT instead of MD, or ask for a repeat on my zone.  
I think it's a real disadvantage for domestic tests.   Matts, SM7PKK, has 
the right idea though:  if you're on enough and your call is really well 
known, it doesn't matter what the callsign is.  People will recognize it 
& copy it correctly.  73,
