Yes,  yes, yes. And if we are already referred to Asia (UA9 is Asiatic
Russia),  doesn't it seem to be an absolutely logical solution to move
all of us to Asatic zone?

A  half of UA9S/T is in Europe, and another half is in Asia :)) But as
long  as  we all are Asians for DXCC, CQ could make our life easier as
well :).
