[CQ-Contest] Pet Peeve

CQP (for CA stations)
CQ CA (for outside CA stations)

This is a good idea, but it can't be applied to all QSO
parties. For example: the New England QSO Party. Stations
outside of New England can't very well call CQ NE; they
might get only answers from Nebraska! How about the
Mid-Atlantic QSO Party? CQ MA will get you Massachusetts.

I feel it would be better to sign CALL / STATE if not in the
host state or region. This is the only foolproof way of
sorting it out.
