Hi John,

I know you, and in all seriousness I'm sure that what follows was not at all
in your mind when you made your post, which, on the face of it is a good
idea, but ...

Encouraging EU participation in the NAQPs, which is what your suggestion
will mostly accomplish, mostly helps the East Coast during the early hours
of the contest when the West Coast has the advantage of running on the high
bands. Its tough enough being competitive on the left coast and this is one
contest that seems to favor the West coast.

Now if we could encourage participation from the Caribbean and Central
America that would be a different story. But power isn't an issue there.

Flame suit on, if necessary.

73, Ken, K6LA
