Since the next WRTC is being hosted in Russia, I wonder if scores in the
RDXC will be used in the results-based selection criteria? That would be a
good reason to operate.
Even from here, we don't have 24 hour prop to Russia. I see this contest as
the chance to repay the favor for all the Russian guys who worked us during
the ARRL DX Contest.
