(I expect this post to be moderated, but here goes with tongue firmly in cheek.)

And we could call it the PEI 160 QSO Party since the US midwest would have
better things to do that weekend.

How about we do something to reward all the stations who can't run EU all

probably works harder to make the qso's he does then VY2ZM does.
