Than why not to count AA DX? 
In my opinion, ARRL DX contest is too simple contest to count for
"qualification for WRTC". Fix your antenna on 307 deg and push F1 the whole
weekend. Sorry if I'm wrong. I should say ARRL contest is a good pile up
training. Just not for European black hole (tm). :-)

Will count WAE DC for WRTC op's selection or not, in any case it's THE BEST
European contest, so far! Because of it's unique rules.

Agree, absolutely! For the first time in WAE CW this year I was using a
packet cluster. And sure it helped a lot. Now, I know how much I lost in
previous WAE tests!
