Anyone know a source of old fashioned tube type RFC's please ?

Typically 1 mH or so, four pie wound elements usually coated in wax.

Current rating maybe an amp or so....

Cant get them over here any more. What a shame

:   october, because this is my first time I will join this contest.

Sure! 9K2 will be really appreciated. Hope you do have the lots 
of activities on several bands.

:    1- do I need to send any thing to CQ before I join the contest?

No nothing except your interest to the contest.

:    2- It's important to have member ship in the ARRL or not important? and if
:   it's important how to get it?

No. CQ WW DX contest has been sponsored by the CQ-Publishing Co 
and this contest is not related to ARRL ato all. Anyone who has 
the legal amateur radio license can particpate in the CQ WW DX.

I attatched the '94(sorry 95 is not available here yet but only 
had a minor change) CQ WW DX rule herewith. Hope this will help 
you a lots.

Hope to work you from Saipan KH0AM Multi/Multi!.

                         THE CQWW RULES

I. OBJECTIVE: For amateurs around the world to contact other
amateurs in as many zones and countries as possible

II. BANDS: All bands, 1.8 through 28, except for the WARC bands.

III.TYPE OF COMPETITION (choose only one). 
      For all categories, all transmitters and receivers must be
located within a 500 meter diameter or within the property limits
of the station licensee's address, whichever is greater.  All
antennas used by the entrant must be physically connected by wires
to the transmitters and receivers used by the entrant.

1. Single Operator Categories: single band or all band; only one
signal allowed at any one time; the operator can change bands at
any time. 
      a. Single Operator High: Those stations at which one person
performs all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. The
use of DX alerting assistance of any kind places the station in the
Single Operator Assisted category.
      b. Single Operator Low: Same as 1(a) except that the output 
      power shall not exceed 100 watts (see rule XI. 11). 
      c. QRPp: Same as 1(a) except that the power output must not 
      exceed 5 watts (see rule XI.11). 
2. Single Operator Assisted. Single operator Assisted stations are
those at which one person performs all of the operating and logging
functions. The use of DX spotting nets or any other form of DX
alerting assistance is allowed.
3. Multi-operator (all band operation only). 
     a. Single Transmitter. Only one transmitter and one band
permitted during any 10-minute period. 
Exception: One-and only one-other band may be used during any 
10-minute period if-and only if-the station worked is a new
multiplier. Logs found in violation of the 10-minute rule will be
automatically reclassified as multi-multi. 
      b. Multi-Transmitter: No limit to transmitters but only one
signal and running station allowed per band.

4. Team Contesting: A team consists of any five radio amateurs
operating in the single operator category. A person can be on only 
one team per mode. Competing on a team will not prevent any team 
member from submitting his personal score for a radio club. A team 
score will be the sum of all the teammember scores. SSB
and CW teams are totally separate. That is, a member of a SSB team
can be on
a totally different CW team. A list of a team's members must be
received at CQ
Headquarters by the time the contest begins. Mail or FAX the list
to CQ, Att:
Team Contest, 76 North Broadway, Hicksville, NY 11801 U.S.A.: FAX
Awards will be given to rhe top team on each mode.

IV. NUMBER EXCHANGE: Phone: RS report plus zone(i.e.,5705).
                     CW: RST report plus zone(i.e.,57905).

V. MULTIPLIER: Two types of multiplier will be used.
     1. A multiplier of one (1) for each different zone contacted 
        on each band.
     2. A multiplier of one (1) for each different country
contacted on each band.
     Stations are permitted to contact their own country and zone
for multiplier
credit. The CQ WAZ written definitions, DXCC country list, WAE
country list, and WAC boundaries are standards. Maritime mobile
stations count only for zone multiplier.

1. Contacts between stations on different continents are worth
three (3) points.
2. Contacts between stations on the same continent but different
countries, one(1) point.  Exception: For North American stations
only, contacts between stations within the North American
boundaries count two (2) points.
3. Contacts between stations in the same country are permitted for
zone or country multiplier credit but have zero (0) point value.

VII. SCORING: All stations: the final score is the result of the
total QSO points
multiplied by the sum of your zone and country multiplier.
        Example: 1000 QSO points x 100 multiplier (30 Zones + 70
Countries) =
100,000 (final score).

VIII. AWARDS: First place certificates will be awarded in each
category listed
under Sec.III in every participating country and in each call area
of the United
States, Canada, European Russia, Asiatic Russia, and Japan. 
      All scores will be published. To be eligible for an award, a
single Operator
station must show a minimum of 12 hours of operation.
Multi-operator stations
must operate a minimum of 24 hours. A single-band log is eligible
for a
single-band award only. If a log contains more than one band it
will be judged
as an all-band entry, unless specified otherwise. 
      In countries or sections where the returns justify, 2nd and
3rd place
awards will be made. All certificates and plaques will be issued to
the licensee
of the station used.

2. Participation is limited to members operating within a local
geographic area
defined as within a 275 km radius from center of club area (except
DXpeditions especially organized for operation in the contest: club
of DXpedition scores are percentaged to the number of club members
on the
3. To be listed, a minimum of 3 logs must be received from a club
and an officer
of the club must submit a list of participating members and their
scores, both
on phone and CW.

1. All times must be in GMT.
2. All sent and received exchanges are to be logged.
3. Indicate zone and country multiplier only the FIRST TIME it is
worked on each
4. Logs must be checked for duplicated contacts, correct QSO points
multipliers. Submitted logs must have duplicate contacts clearly
5. DISKS: Please send us your computer disk. IBM, MS-DOS compatible
disks are
required: The format we want is your CT.Bin file, for example
HS0AC.BIN or your
N6TR.DAT file or your .DBF files. Please name the appropriate file
as: your
call.extension. If you use a different program than mentioned
above, the generic
format we want is a separate file, for each band, containing a
vertical single
column of calls in chronological order. The committee will require
a disk for any
possible high score on request, provided that the paper log or dupe
material as originally submitted was a computer printout. The
outside of the disk
should be labeled clearly with the Call of the entrant, the files
included, the
mode (SSB or CW), and the category. Disks must be accompanied by a
paper log
satisfying all logging instructions.
6. Use a separate sheet for each band.
7. Each entry must be accompanied by a summary sheet showing all
information, category of competition, contestant's name and address
LETTERS, and a signed declaration that all contest rules and
regulations for
amateur radio in the country of operation have been observed.

page on 8 1/2" x 11" paper.
9. All entrants are required to submit cross-check sheets (an
alphabetical list of
calls worked) for each band on which 200 or more QSOs were made.

(3) additional
contacts removed; over 3 %, is grounds for possible

XII. DISQUALIFICATION: Violation of amateur radio regulations in 
the country of the contestant, or the rules of the contest; 
unsportsmanlike conduct; taking credit for excessive duplicate 
contacts; unverifiable QSOs; or unverifiable multipliers will be 
deemed sufficient cause for disqualification. Incorrectly logged
calls will be counted as unverifiable contacts. 
      An entrant whose log is deemed by the Committee to contain 
a large number of discrepancies may be disqualified from eligibility 
for an award, both as a participant operator or station, for one year. 
If an operator is disqualified a second time within 5 years, he will 
be ineligible for any CQ contest awards for 3 years.
      The use of non-amateur means such as telephones, telegrams,
etc., to elicit contacts or multipliers during a contest is 
unsportsmanlike and the entry is subject to disqualification.
Actions and decisions of the CQ Contest Committee are official and

      1. All entries must be postmarked NO LATER than December 1,
1994 for the
Phone section and January 15,1995 for the CW section. Indicate

deadline will be listed in the results but will be declared
ineligible for an award.

Hicksville, NY 11801 USA
