I agree on the KL7 in the 48 should have a call that reflects it's DXCC 
country.  I hated when the FCC changed the rules even about districts. 
If I WB9SBD had moved to Minnesota, in the past if available I would end 
up being WB0SBD and if not available some other zero call sign.

I hate it now that a 9 lander can be in florida, or california or any 
other place for that matter even Alaska.

That sucks to me.
