More than a dozen times during the WPX state-side stations called me when I 
was CQing well below 14150.  Other than the previously mentioned ethical and 
moral issues I didn't see why I should provide a multiplier for a relatively 
rare prefix to someone who was exercising an unfair advantage over his 
fellow state-side competitors.

My approach is to politely say the offending out band callsign, suggest 
they are out of the band and follow with a QRZ dx!
