As a playful WPX SSB contester since 1976 under VK3BID, VK3HZ, VK8HZ and 
now VK2CZ, I've been puzzled why US hams are allowed more points per 
contact than we are.  I appreciated the single point per QSO domestic 
change, as there are times when signals in the southern parts of VK often 
do not exist. (Has anyone ever worked a VK7 in the WPX ?).

I heartily request keeping the last weekend of March as WPX SSB. Its now 
part of my annual holiday leave and activity calendar for the last 24 
years, and a good break from our 4week VHF/UHF Contest period held in
