[CQ-Contest] Be careful

The CQWW Records are listed at:

6Y2A currently has the North American CW Record (39.2M),
not the World Record. Their web site does claim the 
World Record (http://www.k2kw.com/tv.html).

The World Record in CQWW (both modes) is CN8WW with 70.7M
on CW, set in 1999.

The South American CW record is also higher than the 6Y2A
score, PJ4B with 47.5M, also set in 1999. 
Perhaps at the time the 1998 CW contest ended, 6Y2A had 
the CQWW CW M/M record (44M claimed), but I don't have 
the magazines at hand, and CQ has not deigned to put 
results that far back on their web site.
