I spent two hours today determining who will win the 49 sponsored trophies for the 2009 WPX SSB Contest. There are a lot of great ops who fought their way to the top of their category or region!
At the same time, I couldn’t help but notice how weighted the trophy program is toward the High Power entrants. Only 4 trophies were awarded to Low Power entries! That seems unfair since Low Power makes up 2100 of the 4086 logs received.
There’s still time to balance things out. Take a peek at http://www.cqwpx.com/plaques.htm and see if there is an unsponsored award you would be interested in taking on. Or suggest a new one. Check out both SSB and CW.
Send your requests or suggestions to the award meister for the WPX SSB/CW Contests – Doug, K1DG. firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, thanks to everyone who participated and helped make the WPX such a fun contest.
