Hello Ed and all,

1. The rules make no distinction between ASSISTED and NON-ASSISTED.
   So the use of clusters, skimmers is up to the operators.
2. The primary source to determine the USA call area is the cty_wt.dat.
   If an USA call has an entry in this file its information is used for the
   call area multiplier (and zone for QSO points).
   If there is NO entry in the cty_wt.dat then the number in the callsign
   determines the call area.

> Goetz, a couple of clarifications, please ...
> 1.  I don't find any mention of Assistance or Packet Cluster usage, so I

> 2.  Are the call area multipliers for W, VK, VE and JA based on prefix
> number or actual call area of operation?  If I operate as W0YK from USA
> zone
> 6 (California), do I count as call area 0 or call area 6?  If I operate as
> W0YK/6, am I counted as call area 6?  I see no requirement to operate as
> W0YK/6.
> Thanks,
