By that observation it would seem that the CQWW program is geared more
toward Stateside and DX stations will just have to wait ... maybe
years !!  I have won my 1st plaque (EU low power for last year
cqww-phone), I will now have to wait and see what happens - I guess
hand delivery is out of the question.

I will be operating ZC4BS again for CQWW RTTY/CW/PHONE 1998-2000 and
was looking forward to reclaiming the world Low Power Record - but
after 13 years of entering (and enjoying this main contest), if the
certificate or trophy issue cannot be resolved I will pass !!

I am still waiting on five certificates - one since 1984, and before
I'm flamed the two addresses used are either my fathers QTH or my
current one - and doubt very much that all of them got lost in the

I would be very interested to read comments from the volunteer
comittee on these issues - before sponsors and potential sponsors
start getting itchy feet.
