   HI ALL,
   not only UA9's (F, S/T, W & X) bigger parts of which are geographicaly
in EUROPE, but also W4's,7's and 8's are a problem in high rate contest like
CQWW is. Just think how much easier it would've been for many of us if we
didn't have to strain our ears copying zones from a W7 or W8 or any other
W that doesn't even indicate his call area with a /#! 
   So, I suggest that the CQWW CC along with CQ mag. authorities do away
with this very big problem ASAP!!! Make our life easier!
   If seriously. I see no problem in this situation at all. More to it.
If mentioned UA9's started giving the zones they belong to by WAZ defenitions
(in other words started behaving themselves in compliance with the rules of
the contest)it would give the contest a new twist an make it little more 
interesting, because then not just the US pileups required more skill but also
a UA9 run.      
   I'll see you all in the CQWW SSB on 40m from UA9AYA (Yes, from CQ zone 17).
   73's & GL, Willy UA9BA
