CQ World Wide WPX Contest

Jun 21

We are just 10 days away from the July 1 log submission deadline for the CQ WPX CW Contest. Please send your logs, in Cabrillo format, to cw@cqwpx.com. If you have trouble with the robot, or a log that is not in the Cabrillo format, you can send it directly to me and I will help you with the process.

All logs are welcome. Even small logs are helpful for log checking purposes. And who knows? You may win a certificate for your efforts.

As we finish up typing in the last of the paper logs, we are still accepting logs for the SSB contest (to ssb@cqwpx.com). They aren’t eligible for awards, but they will help us in the log checking process.

Log check reports for the 2007 SSB and CW contests are also available. Email me (k5zd@cqwpx.com) with the call and mode and I will send you your report.

There is a new plaque for the CW contest. David Kopacz, 6Y1V, has stepped up to sponsor the SOUTH AMERICA SINGLE OPERATOR ALL BAND CW plaque.

Steve K6AW sent me the log checking reports for all entries from both modes of the CQ WPX Contest 2007. Send an email to k5zd@cqwpx.com to request your report. Please include the call used in the contest and the mode (CW or SSB) in your request.

As we started the log checking for the CQ WPX Phone contest, WX5S and I were suprised to discover over 900 different club names listed in the Cabrillo files! Many of them were abbreviations so we were having to do extra research to figure out what the club name really should be. Others were for national organizations such as DARC or ARI that are not eligible for the club competition.

Our goal is to prevent errors by automating the score collection and reporting process. To do this, we need your help in providing accurate log files so we can minimize the amount of manual processing that is required. There is a saying in the computer business, “Garbage In = Garbage Out.”

I have created a web page with a list of known club names. If you are a member of one of these clubs, please take a moment to spell out your full club name in the Cabrillo file. Feel free to cut and paste the exact name from the web page.

Don’t worry about resubmitting a log if you have already sent one. We are already well into the process of sorting it out for this year, but please keep this in mind for your CW log or for the future. Perhaps we will add club name checking to the robot some day.

At 7 days after the WPX CW contest, we have already received over 1850 logs. With a few paper logs still to process, the WPX Phone contest has 3525 logs. Please keep them coming. The more logs we have, the better the log checking. Received log numbers are a great indication to CQ Magazine how much we appreciate their sponsorship of the contest.

We accidentally left out the World High plaque for the Multi-Two category for the WPX CW contest. This is the UA1DZ Memorial sponsored by W3UA.
