"I know it is cqwwDX contest and US is not DX"-what else can be said?
Some day all the morons will have logging programs, or they will just die
off anyway so don't ruin the best contest by turning it into a domestic
contest for the USA.
WPX was never a DX contest, the prefixes always counted as a multiplier.
If the rate is not good enough, go somewhere where your skill will be used
to the maximum-like some beach with a vertical in the Caribbean. Lots of
places have zero activity.

3. The casual day to day operator really does not have any conception of the

rules of the contest and thinks he is truly helping out...that meaning the 
stateside callers passing out qso's.......is it time to step up to the plate
allow 1 point per qso for contacts within one's country??
Although I'm going to catch crap on this one, I think it is a great idea.  
Being at the corner of the US that is forced to beam through the US to work
and Europe, the K1,2,3 guys would be amazed at how many W/K guys call me in 
WW just trying to give a point.  The effort is appreciated but of course

I did 40 HP over the weekend.  The worst part is to have some EU station
on your clear frequency during a juicy EU run, ask QRL, get an answer from 
you and then have him begin to CQ.  He has no problem running since the EU 
stations he's running are much stronger than me.  Meanwhile, I have to hit
the F! 
button endlessly hoping to bludgeon him off my frequency.  If a W6 station 
calls during this time,he does nothing for my score even though he is 3000
away.  However, an EA gets points for working CT which could be a couple of 
miles away.

Yeah, I know it is cqwwDX contest and US is not DX for me.  However, it sure

is nice to wish for it for Christmas.  Hey, the rules for WPX were changed
allow points for WPX and that is a great contest.  Why not CQWW?
