*Amazing !!! … in 37 years only 4 stations USA disqualified from the contest !!!**Here definitely better right ?? ... I would say this ridiculous ... only 8
stations disqualified in the last 37 years.*
Come on Alessandro ! There isn't any kind of conspiracy going on like you're implying. Much of it has to do with the difference in the contesting culture between the USA and Europe. I can tell you 99.9999 % of the contesters in the USA don't cheat in any way. I have lots of well known contesting friends in Europe and they tell me cheating is rampant. Especially running over 1.5 KW.
My guess that most of the USA contest calls you listed either broke the 10 minute rule if they were multi-op or claimed non-assisted when they were assisted. I've never heard of a USA station that has been caught padding their log with fake QSO's
