The CQ World Wide WPX Contest is billed as an international
operating event, inviting worldwide participation. How does a
change of "in-country" QSO point assignment contribute to the
world flavor of competitiveness or success to this contest ?

Why the need/incentive for a "in-country" QSO points ?

Will this re-align the playing field to be more even of all participates

The folks who advocate 1-point counter for in-country QSO's seem
to have a very narrow focus and understanding of the overall
competitive\scoring matrix of the WPX event.

This instant gratification of one point in-country  QSO does not
contribute to the global competiveness to WPX.

P.S. This sure beats a vanity callsign discussion ... internationally
