Zoli -
Thanks for your comment.  
We are happy to reintroduce Single-Band entrants to the qualifying  process.

Please understand that a score from HC8 will never be compared to a score  
from D4.  HC8 competes only against other scores in SA North (CQ Zones  
9-10).  D4 competes only against scores from AF North/West CQ Zones  33-34-35.  
Since the single-band category has a much lower number of entrants than the 
 all-band categories, it was a concern that a low score (ex: 50 QSOs on 10  
Meters) could earn the same qualifying points as a serious all-band effort 
if  those scores were only compared to other similar single-band scores from 
that  Selection Area or Score Comparison Area.  
There is no easy answer to this, so the decision was to compare the SB  
scores to the AB scores in that same Area.  
We do recognize that CQ WPX may produce the most competitive SB efforts and 
 that SB in CQ WW is likely to be a tougher way to qualify.  
See you on the band(s)!

If I understand well...
The reality in CQWW SOAB vs SOSB... :)
A) SO AB HP (HC8A): 15,000,000
B) SO SB HP (D44AC):   3,000,000

A) 1000 x 1.0 x (15,000,000 / 15,000,000) = 1000
B) 1000 x 1.0 x  (  3,000,000 / 15,000,000) =   200
(...SOAB QRP #1 WORLD --> 700 !)
That is nonsense. Rather please cancel this categories (SO SB HP and  LP).
