Yup, That's the set!  It was more or less just a monthly quota of q's to make.   I think a bunch of those months my only q's at all were for WOTMC.

Roger that David.  FAMILY FIRST!  Watch them grow.  They are all too soon grown and out on their own. Although it never felt like it when my son was growing up!  Now this old man looks back and remembers how quick it went.

I think the main thing different from the WTW would be time period constraint.  And that would add another condition to the logic.  In my mind a Zodiac sign equalled a WTW continent.  That meant that N9AVY could be worked once for each Zodiac having an A....but only during the appropriate time period.

With prop like it is, I think anything that increased activity of the membership is a good thing.  Feels like the old "use it or loose it" just happened to what had been PSK segment on 17m.  All I see there now is FT-8.

Sounds like we should pass on WTH for now.  73, take care, love those little ones....and remember to find time to breath!

Believe a call can only be used once per continent name.  Can be used in multiple continents, for a maximum total of nine times.
