It was the best of times,

  - 0800 Sun 40 Meter JA run @50/hr,
     the WPXers dream at 6 points per QSO and JA Mults as a bonus,
  - hitting 1,000,000 with less than an hour to go,
  - using CT Version 9's band map, elegant in its simplicity,
     and the new customizable display of CTs windows and colors

it was the worst of times.

  - 2000-2100 Sun @ * 1 *  /hr, and not for lack of furiously
     CQing and S&Ping with 2 radios, and then more furiously
     S&Ping  with  2 radios, desperately trying to avoid the
     dreaded ONE in 60 minutes, and failing.

I know that ARRL accepts INTERNET entries in various ARRL Contests, or 
digital entries via ARRL BBS, But does anyone know if CQ Magazine accepts 
digital/Internet submissions for the contests it sponsors -- including 
the just completed CW WPX?  Pls and tnx.  73 de Alan

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what kind of
paint I should use on a Rohn 25 tower.  Would Rustoleum work
or is there a special paint I should think about getting?

At least there was no rain this time-- but came close. Heavy marine layer
in all three days on Baja Pacific coast, with occasional sunshine. Best
hourly rate was 70, best 10 minute rate about 130. Bands in and out, back
and forth between 40 and 20, with a few 15M Qs, and a few on 80M during wee
hours. Bands suspiciously quiet around the time of the end of the Indy
500. Best line from NS2E (a newly returned ham/contester) when S&P-ing for
MULTs: "No, I can't answer him, he's calling CQ DX-- Wait, we ARE DX!"
(Sort of) 
Thanks for all the Qs. 73, Larry N6AZE

Conditions sounded pretty crummy when I was on for the few hours I operated.
The funny thing is that out of the 100 or so QSOs I made, I had to convince
half of the guys that I was not NF6S and hadnt worked them before!

Soapbox:  We were extremely pleased to have a decent European opening on 20m
on Friday night, and very nice JA runs on 40 and 80 on Saturday night/Sunday
morning, which we hadn't expected.  There was also more 15m activity than we
had hoped for.  N6IP established a new NCCC record for "Most Amplifiers Smoked"
having knocked out two amps within 3 Q's of each other.  Thanks to all for 
lots of fun, exceptionally well behaved operating, and another great WPX
Contest.  (One of these days we'll simply _have_ to get serious about 160m.)

Contest was going well until the R-4C died at 0230z on Saturday night. I didn't
hear about the flare until after the contest...thought condx to Europe were
better Saturday night from here.

CQ Worldwide WPX Contest - 1994

Call: WA7BNM   (S.Calif)
Mode: CW               Category: Single Op, Low Power, Single Band 15m

Band       QSO      QSO Pts   Pts/Q   Prefixes
 15        169       157       0.9      144        =  22,608

What a difference a couple of months makes! I thought my pathetic
CW skills would limit my scoring, but decided to try a serious effort
in the CW version of WPX for the first time. Remind me to wait until
the sunspot cycle improves before trying a 15m single band effort in
this contest again. Using the same antennas, rig, etc. managed only
3 percent of my SSB score in this contest. 9 Qs per hour for
19 hours. 2 JAs worked (all I heard).

The only good news was that African stations had strong signals on
the West Coast Saturday morning, with S9, 3DA and TR being nice finds.
Also heard 9A1A and a LZ calling CQ at about 1900Z Saturday, but very
light copy. However, contest soon turned into a domestic contest with
a fair number of prefixes, but no QSO points.

Now I know why there were only 3 entries in the 15m single op (high
and low power) last year.
