Jeff, why don't you move to New England for a couple of major contests then?
Just kidding.
Only wanted to remind you that there are some other countries in the World
besides U.S.A.
For instance, there was only 1 spot for Canada in the last WRTC, and guys
from VE5/6/7 had to compete with VE1/VO1/VY2, which I believe makes a bit
more difference, than, for example between Indiana and Tennessee...
IMO, the selection should be made by comparing scores IN THE SAME area. I.E.
W4's have to compete against W4's, VE3's - against VE3's and so on.

N2IC does in DX contests.
