The WPX CW contest is in the books and conditions were the best so far this year. We had the summer type openings over the pole at night on 20 meters. 40 meters was incredible with DX signals still workable hours after their sunrise (or hours before sunset). From here in the Northeast USA, 15 meters was open to Europe all day on both Saturday and Sunday. I could hear OL7R and DR1A every time I tuned across the band! Even 10 meters produced lots of QSOs by sporadic E. I heard many stations sending very high QSO numbers as a result.

I hope everyone who participated in the contest will submit their log. Only 36 hours after the end of the contest we have already received 1100 logs!

Logs should be sent to the robot at If you are having problems submitting your log to the robot, send those to Log expert K1AR will help you through the process.
