Hi Bill

What is the reason for eliminating country to country contacts?    Are you
afraid it would turn into a domestic SS type contest?  Just curious.  I
always thought the idea of a contest it to work as many guys as possible in
a given time.  If we would give a point for country to country QSO's, it
sure would be a lot more interesting for the little guys on the lower bands
(like me) who can't run Eu. on 80 and 40 at night.
IMHO   73
