This is not a "Worldwide" contest. If it were a worldwide contest, there would be a winner on every continent.The contest period would have to be 24 hours, if the playing field is to be level.I have been back-and-forth with RSGB over "Rest of World" meaning EI.I have to drive 4 hours to do my contesting, then 4 hours back.I have (arbitrarily) decided that the driving time must be less than the contest time. Russia has so many great ops, they won't even notice that I am not there.

Number of hours seems analogous to e.g. RSGB 160M test. Which runs from
2100Z to 0100Z, despite being much further west than Russia.
