Hi Igor.

Yes, nice contest, except:
a) absolutely not suitable for North America (00 - 12 UTC, night time in Western hemisphere), unless you have HUGE antennas for Low Bands;
b) no way you may work casual participants because of high complexity of the exchange.

I tried to participate once few years ago... just a waste of time. Very boring event. Sorry.

There is RAEM contest in December
where you get points depending on distance plus some bonus points for stations above arctic circle.
