First, where is the personal achievement from logging onto a remote
"super-station", or even a remote average station that is more
geographically advantaged for working certain countries?

Second, while I don't live in a restricted location, I currently operate
using a single wire antenna up about 35 feet, and in 4.5 years have worked
189 countries - using no more than 5 Watts out.  I know others who have
worked more countries at 5 Watts or less - with indoor antennas!

Perhaps it's time for the asterisk to be introduced into the DXCC program.
