Hi, John.

Yeah, I was aware of that.  I just figured that the sponsors decided 
discriminating against DXpeditions was not in the best interest of their 
contests, and therefore added that exclusion to the radius limit.

Joe has indicated the roots go back to an altogether different 
cause-and-effect, though, so it sounds like the rule is mostly 
geographic in nature.  Arguments could probably go on for years 
regarding which aspects of that need to be addressed, so I think I'll 
bow out of that part of the discussion.
