It isn't about ME, Hans, it's about the thousands of contesters outside 
the favored geography, many of them my neighbors. It isn't even about 
winning, but rather simply about being in the contest or not. If you're 
in W6 in a DX contest, you're not in the contest, no matter how good 
your station or your skills.

We've observed that N6MJ is an incredible operator, but he's not "in the 
contest" from even the very best station in W6. To get in the game, he 
must travel at least 3,000 miles, and 5,000 miles is better.
