Sorry guys! But for me it sounds like a complaint that europeans make more points than americans. Something like .. "unfair"!

Is there anybody interested to know what the rest of the world thinks? SA, AS, AF and OC?? Or we are coming back to that time when Portugal and Spain divided the world in two parts? 

So, here it goes my vote: Keep the contest the way it is. It is a WW contest and I don't see reasons to motivate qsos inside the country.

BTW, Who wrote the rules? Americans, Canandians, Europeans...?? Whoever did, the rules are good in my opinion.

Hey! Remember it's my point of view.
