The writeup in October QST on the ARRL DX contest results is one of the
best I have seen in QST in years. Kudos (QDOs?) to KR1R and WN4KKN - it
was nice to see some analysis rather than just expanded soapbox comments.

I concur wholheartedly with WB2EKK's comments on the ARRL DX Test Writeup.
Nice job, nice stories, nice graphics.  Almost as good as the stuff in
the early 70's (ok, ok...so it's better in many ways).

Enjoyed my first semi-serious CQP effort. My usual A3 at 20' and 40 inverted V.
No Qs on 80 and 2 on 10.

       417 Qs (193 cw + 224 ssb) * 57 (all but Sutter) = 58539

Right on wb2eek & k7gm -- the sidebars were great!  The three-way shoot-out
with q-rate graphs especially.  Also the personal stories.

Contest period: 00:00:00Z to 02:00:00Z on Sunday October 24 (Saturday local)

Bands: 40 and 20 meters only.

Max power output: 150 watts.

Exchange: Consecutive QSO number (starting with one), name and state
          or province or DXCC country (if outside W/VE).  The name for
          the first QSO is your name.  For every QSO afterwards, the name
          you send is the name you received in the previous QSO.

Call: CQ INT

The standard sprint QSY rule must be followed.  Both callsigns must be
sent during the exchange.  Only one signal at a time please and all QSOs
are to take place on CW.  All information submitted must of been decoded
during the contest.  The use of post contest detection or verification
techniques or systems is not allowed.  Also, do not make round robin
type QSOs.  It will be very easy to spot these with the names floating
around.  A round robin QSO is one where you should QSY, but instead
hang around to work the station who is QSOing the station you gave
the frequency to.

You may work the same station multiple times on a band provided they are
separated by at least 3 other QSOs in both logs.  For example, if WN4KKN
and N6TR had a QSO, they both must work at least three other stations
before they could work each other again.

You must not work the same station or stations using any kind of schedule
or system.  It is the intent of this rule to make sure we don't run out of
stations to work.  It is NOT the intent of this rule for you to change how
you would operate the contest if dupes were not allowed.  If, in the log
checkers opinion, you have not lived up to the intent of this rule, your
log will be disqualified!!

Total score is the number of contacts you make.  The same penalities used
in the sprint contests will apply to busted contacts except that if a QSO
if found to be invalid due to miscopied information, the contact will be
removed from both logs.

Logs must be sent in ASCII format via internet to n6tr at cmicro.com within
72 hours of the end of the contest.

Logs must show the band, time, station worked, number sent, number received,
name received and QTH received for each QSO.  Also, please tell me the
name you start the contest with.  I will assume the name you send is the
name received on your previous QSO, so you don't have to show that.  Please
refrain from using improper names.  There will be a 1000 point deduction for
anyone injecting the contest with the name BEAVIS or BUTTHEAD.

Results will be publised on CQ-CONTEST.

Good luck, tell a friend and HAVE FUN!!
