The ARRL DX contest could be renamed as the "US QSO Party", because only
out of country stations can work US for points...  We've got another BIG
contesting weekend coming up. The Carolina Weekend begins on 2/25 with the
South Carolina QSO Party at 1500z. The on Sunday it continues with the
North Carolina QSO Party at 1500z. Visit www.scqso.com for all the details.
