Response from K3EST:
Your question is a good one. The CQ WW contest uses several sources for
determining multipliers. Country multipliers are determined by DXCC +
additional WAE countries. Continents are determined by WAC. Zones are
determined by WAZ. There are really three different questions. The WAZ does
not determine countries or continents. These sources are mentioned in the
CQ WW Rules.
Here is what they say:
WAC rules state:
Europe includes the fourth(sic) - sixth call areas of Russia (R1-6).
No mention of UA9 as being in Europe.
DXCC rules state:
UA9/0 = Asiatic Russia
Therefore UA9S/W = Asiatic Russia.
WAE Country list:
1AØ, 3A, 4U1I, 4U1V, 9A, 9H, C3, CT, CU, DL, EA, EA6, EI, ER, ES, EU, F,
G, GD, GI, GJ, GM, GM/s, GU, GW, HA, HB, HBØ, HV, I, IS, IT, JW, JW/b, JX,
LA, LX, LY, LZ, OE, OH, OHØ, OJØ, OK, OM, ON, OY, OZ, PA, R1F, R1M, RA,
RA2, S5, SM, SP, SV, SV/A, SV5, SV9, T7, T9, TA1, TF, TK, UR, YL, YO, YU,
Z3, ZA, ZB.
No mention of UA9S/W. All RA are in Europe (obviously, European Russia).
WAZ list says:
Zone 16. Eastern Zone of Europe: UR-UZ, EU-EW, ER, UA1, UA3. UA4, UA6, UA9
(S,W), US, UC, UO, and R1M (M V, Island)
DXCC = UA9/0 = Asiatic Russia
WAC = UA9/0 = Asia
WAE = Doesn't count UA9S/W as being in Europe.
So,to answer your question.
1. UA9S/W is in ASIA (DXCC, WAC)
2. Look for your results under Asiatic Russia.

From CQWW's point of view, what is the source to determine entrant's
DXCC Entity and, consequently, his continent?
In my case:
WAZ zones list says I am in "Eastern zone of Europe" (UA9S and UA9T
are the same):
> Zone 16. Eastern Zone of Europe: UR√UZ, EU-EW, ER, UA1, UA3. UA4,
> UA6, UA9 (S,W). US, UC, UO, and R1M (M V, Island)
DXCC list persists I am in "Asiatic" Entity:
> UA-UI8,9,0 Asiatic Russia AS (F) (G)
So could anyone of CQWW officials please clarify us, from CQ
Magazine point of view, are we in Asia, or in Europe? What is our
CONTINENT? I.e. where should I look for my results, among AS.RU or
