This post emphasizes how out of touch east coast and EU contesters are 
to how things are in the rest of the world. My station's personal best 
in ARRL DX CW was 1829K in a multi-single with N6GQ in 2011. As single 
op assisted, my best was 1460K in 2012.

Yes, spots can certainly make S&P a lot more efficient, but the only way 
I could add "a million points if not two" is to move 2,500 miles east!
