No Changes to the 2020 CQ WW WPX Rules due to COVID-19

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.

Some Guidance on USA-based Remote Operations

Remote operations are growing in popularity and it is likely that there will be significant remote station activity in WPX CW 2020.

Please be aware that operators using remote stations based in the USA must hold US licenses.  The following guidance comes from Scot Stone, Deputy Chief, Mobility Division, Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, FCC:

“Reciprocal authority does not authorize remote control, even when you are in the United States… Remote control of a transmitter located in the United States requires a license from the FCC, regardless of where you are located.”

Bottom line – You need a USA license in order to remotely operate a transmitter in the United States.
