What is the correct date for the CQ 160 CW Contest?
QST listed on 1/21-23.
CQ Mag announcement says 1/28-30.
I believe the official one in CQ, BUT I see people saying see you this
weekend....Has something changed??????
I also like the Zone trophies. If I thought I could do it AND the sprint
AND still have enough home front goodwill left for 48 straight in ARRL DX CW
I would get in there and try for the Zone 4 trophy...

I was one of the guys that wanted more information about hour long
people operated, what antennas they used, etc. in the NAQP. I don't want
to increase anyone's workload so I will be glad to gather this information
and put it in (hopefully) some type of useable format.
So if you are interested, e-mail me your hours operated, station setup,
summary (band/qso/mult breakdown) and rate/hour breakdown and I will try to
distill it into useful information. Also if you have any ideas about what
type of statistics are useful, let me know. I'm interested in things like
what rates people achieved on various bands, when they switched bands, what
antennas seemed to play well etc.
I'll do this for both NAQP CW and SSB. I'll post a note to the reflector when
I'm done and will e-mail the results to anyone that is interested. Please
don't post this stuff to the reflector. Send it to fhmoore at ingr.com
Thanks, Frank KE4GY

Can someone fill me in on the DXCC status of the 3V8AS operation
a while back? I believe it is not creditable for DXCC, but don't
know for sure. Thanks...Al, AG6D /

Rotor froze again (just like in NAQP CW). Best run was late on 40 when
there weren't many other signals on the band. For me this is fewer Qs
then last January but a lot more mults.

With all respect to Randy... I don't buy this for a minute. First,
a single rule that says "Rover entries don't count toward the club
score" is not complicated. Second, if a loophole exists in ANY contest,
it will be exploited; if the loophole is "not real fair to the rest
of the 'legitimate' contesters," then why NOT close it? It just doesn't
make sense to me.

Boring or not, people will do it (after all, the January contest is
not presently known for its high excitement level :). As for peer
pressure being effective in closing a rule loophole that single-
handedly ensures a club victory... "I don't think so, Tim." :)
