CQ World Wide WPX Contest

Jun 7

The raw scores for the 2020 WPX CW are now available online at https://cqwpx.com/raw.htm?mode=cw.

The listing shows scores as calculated by the WPX log checking software prior to any checking. This should give participants a good indication of their category placement at the World, Continent, or Country level.  Score reductions of 2% to 15% (or more) are possible, so we will have to wait for the log checking process before final results can be announced.

Please check that your entry is in the correct category. Report any errors or questions to director@cqwpx.com.  Do NOT resubmit your log to ‘fix’ any problems!

We had a record number of log submissions with 5,566 received to date. Thanks to everyone who submitted their log.

Apr 29

There are no changes to the published rules for CQ WW WPX.

All multi-operator categories will be permitted in the 2020 running of WPX CW, as they were for WPX SSB.  Operators should follow their local government’s guidance regarding social distancing.

Use of remote technologies is encouraged as means of addressing social distancing requirements.

(Hicksville, NY – March 27, 2020) – Former CQ WPX Contest Director Randy Thompson, K5ZD, has been appointed interim director of the on-air competition following the resignation of Terry Zivney, N4TZ. Zivney had been contest director for the past seven years. The WPX Contest is amateur radio’s second-most popular competition, with only the CQ World Wide DX Contest drawing more entrants each year.

“We thank Terry for his excellent work in administering and promoting the WPX Contest,” said CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, “and we will miss him as part of our contesting staff. I am looking forward to working closely again with Randy, who has been part of our contest leadership team for many years.”

Thompson, who has also previously served as director of the CQ World Wide DX Contest, is a long-time CQ Contest Committee member and administrator of the various CQ contesting websites. Experienced contesters who are interested in “giving back” to the contesting community by administering a major contest are invited to apply for the position of WPX Contest Director. Inquiries and applications should be directed to CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU, via e-mail to <w2vu@cq-amateur-radio.com>.
