What is DX? Europe is country rich, similar to the US states. They get
1 point for working all those countries which are smaller than many or
most of our western states.
If we define DX as 2000 plus miles ok.
I would be fine not getting any points for working stations in Colorado
and one point for all other states. It is nearly identical to Europe.
The USA is Republic made up of individual states. Not much different
than the European Union.
We contest for fun. Not a whole lot of fun happened in NA. I could
find spots on 20m every day that never happens.
