Here are few thing to think about.
We all like contests and also like to be awarded for our efforts. To
some it' s just another trophy hanging on the wall but to some "small
pistols" that piece of wood can mean a world.
Trophy for at least all single band LP/HP entries would spike interest
in contesting as well as competition.
WPX contest has very limited number of trophy donors and that has to be
better even though almost everyone favor CQWW contest. Ever since I won
one i felt obligation to donate one.
Now how to do it?
I asked same question and was directed to cqwpx.com to contact contest
director, currently Steve, K6AW. I did it last year and was told that
since he just took over from N8BJQ I should contact him latter. Well ,
I did send 4 emails in past 3 moths to all email addresses listed on
official WPX website as well as QRZ.com and address found in archive of
Contesting.com. Last one I also forwarded to N8BJQ who promptly
responded explaining me that Steve travels a lot and he is probably on
HC8 for ARRL contest and probably as soon as he comes back I will get
I guess Steve receives a lot of emails and probably overlooked all four
of mine. How many others? Do not get me wrong, I am not saying that
Steve does bad job as contest director but only that in today world it
is easy to organize simple stuff like web site with all informations
HOW and WHERE.
I am sure that all of you will agree that with simple web site and
mail-form to apply for sponsorship will make contests more popular.
As well with help of PAYPAL donors can pay for one without even
contacting the contest director.
I am willing to help, If I do not know how then certainly can find
someone who does.
