The CW Open and the Colorado QSO Party are simultaneous events. The exchanges 

CW Open: Serial Number and Name
COQP: Name and County (in CO), Name and State/Province/DX (outside CO)

Please cooperate...CW Open stations might ask COQP stations for a serial number 
and COQP folks might ask CW Open'ers for QTH. Please help out and Thanks!
