CQ WW Contest Committee Update
The CQ WW Contest Committee (CQWWCC) wishes to announce the beginning of
informational updates. We hope these periodic updates will serve to inform
you of actions taken by the CQWWCC, behind the scenes committee work,
history of the CQ WW and other topics. With this update, we will initiate
regular communication with the contest community beginning later this week.
In spite of our reluctant sun to bring new sun spots into play, contest
activity continues to grow at unparalleled rates. The 2008 CQ WW contests
occurred with the solar flux about as low as it can get. In spite of
challenging conditions, over 10,000 plus contesters submitted logs. The CQ
WW is a fantastic competition which brings out the best in amateur radio:
team work, station construction, antenna design, propagation knowledge and
operating skills. Just turn on your radio during the 2009 CQ WW and you can
join in the fun. Once you listen to the bands during the CQ WW, you will be
hooked and guaranteed to have a good time. The CQ WW is a celebration of ham
radio skill and effort. If you want to know how long it is until the 2009 CQ
WW SSB test check out the website of OT5A: http://www.on7lr.org.
The full 2009 CQ WW rules can be found at cqww.com.
We look forward to providing more updates in the future. In the meantime,
if you have any questions, such as translation of any update into your
language, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
