Dear Contest Community,
About 18 years ago, CWJF Group started Manchester Mineira Contest, a
small contest on May, 3rd weekend.
First, it was a domestic competition in Brazil. Then, it became
largest South America Contest.
In 2006, It was open to All Americans with name MMAA Contest. Even
with a strong competition from
Dayton Ham fest (same weekend), in 2010, we got 1200 participants!
Now, it expanded again to CQMM DX Contest - CQ Manchester Mineira DX
Contest, open to all ham radios.
CQMM DX Contest is not on same Dayton weekend. Now, contest is held in
April 3rd weekend annually:
