The preliminary rules for the 2010 CQ WPX Contest are now available for review. There are many changes to the rules so please read them carefully. Highlights include:
IV. (e) – Defines QSO alerting assistance.
V. – Rewording of all category definitions to improve clarity.
V. C. – Overlay categories are now open to all single operator entries including Assisted.
V. D. (a) – Multi-single category is now limited to one transmitted signal at any time and 8 band changes per hour. This matches the multi-single rule for the WPX RTTY Contest. This is a major change to the definition of this category.
VI. – Multi-single stations now use a single serial number across all bands. Only Multi-Two and Multi-Multi use serial numbers per band.
X. – Certificates will now be issued to each call area in European Russia. Rules for minimum hours of operation to be eligible for an award were removed.
XI. – Minor clarifications to the club rules.
XII. (c) – Single band entrants are now required to include all QSOs made on all bands with their log. This is to help us with the log checking. There is no change to how the scoring is defined.
Please send any comments, questions, or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 25, 2009. This will give us time to review the comments and make any corrections prior to the magazine publishing deadline.
