Steve, unfortunately you are right, US and JA participation is very
low. If you go to http://rdxc.org/asp/pages/stat_c.asp?ID=0 you can
see how many participants took part from particular country.
Here's the US and JA participation, 1998 - 2006:
United States of America 4 15 41 41 102 66 109 90 111
Japan 44 51 29 43 40 53 57 57 57
SL> It might be fun in a few years when the sunspots return.
No doubt it will be fun when the sunspots return.
