I can speak for everyone, but DX has never been America-centered to me.  If
I hear a European call CQ DX, I sometimes reply since I consider myself the
DX for him/her.  When I was stationed in GTMO, I rightly or wrongly I
considered the U.S. to be DX.  And then there is the Russian DX Contest
this weekend, I consider myself to be DX to the Russians and others.  So I
guess it is all relative.
