Classic Exchange "CX"

   The CX is a no-pressure contest celebrating the older commercial and
   homebrew equipment that was the pride and joy of ham shacks many
   decades ago.

   The object is to encourage restoration, operation and enjoyment of
   this older "Classic" equipment. However, you need not operate a
   Classic rig to participate in the CX.

   YOU MAY USE ANY RIG in the contest although new gear is a distinct
   scoring disadvantage. You can still work the "great ones" with
   modern equipment.


AM and SSB only

   Saturday February 11, 2006 from 1400 UTC to 0800 UTC on February 12,
   (9 A.M. Eastern Time on Saturday to 3 A.M. Eastern Time on Sunday)


AM, SSB, and CW

   Sunday February 12, 2006 from 1400 UTC to 0800 UTC on February 13, 2006.

   Phone: Call "CQ Classic Exchange"

   Exchange your name, RST, QTH (state US, province for Canada, country
   for DX),
   receiver and transmitter manufacturer/model (homebrew send final amp
   tube or transistor type) and other interesting conversation.

   The same station may be worked with different equipment combinations
   on each band and in each mode. Non-participating stations may be
   worked for credit.


   Calculate your score for each mode (AM, SSB, CW) and total these
   scores for your overall CX score.

For each mode:

   Multiply total number of complete QSOs (all bands) by your CX

   Complete QSO requires successful exchange of name, QTH, RST, type of
   transmitter and type of receiver.

   CX multiplier: Total age in years old of all receivers and
   transmitters you used in that mode.

   Each receiver and transmitter must be used in a minimum of three
   complete QSOs to be counted in the multiplier.

   If the equipment is homebrew, count it as a minimum of 25 years old
   unless actual construction date or date of its construction article
   (in the case of a "reproduction") is older.

Tranceivers score a separate receivers and transmitters of equal age.

   Certificates and appropriate memorabilia are awarded every now and
   then for the highest score, the longest DX, exotic equipment,
   noteworthy signals, best excuses and other unusual achievements.

   Send logs, scores, comments, anecdotes, pictures, etc. to J.D. "Mac"
