For one there is competition in W1.  What competition is there when you fly
to KP4 to operate the SS?  Let's see... anyone else in KP4 or KP2 I guess.
It sure isn't anyone operating in the 50 states.  

Winning the SS after flying to KP4 is an accomplishment.  Making the top
ten in a DX contest from west of the Mississippi is a bigger one.  Too bad
the latter isn't rewarded accordingly.
