Stopped by the PO box ont the way to work this morning and found the
latest CQ Contest.

Front cover photo of CT1BOH in his shack; and a 1/3 page writeup inside
on page 12.

K3EST's editorial reminds us that this year's CQWWDX Contest is the 50th
aniversary of the contest.  (I wonder if there will be specially marked
certificates/trophys this year which will take even longer to distribute
to the winners?)

Feature articles:  Expanded 96 SSB CQWW Results (band-by-band breakdowns
for Europe, Japan, Zones 3, 4, & 5, and log entry comparisons); The
Bavarian Contest Club Beverage Box; The CQ Contest Hall of Fame - history
and nominating procedure.

Regular Department articles: Operating Techniques - CQWW Phone Tips for
Low Sunspot Years; Contesting History - The Roof of the World (AC4); In
The Beginning - Advice from ZS6EZ; Contest Breakdown - Gibraltar ZB2, A
Challenge for Contesting; Up The Tower - Aluminum Towers; Continental
Countdown - results 2/97 Asia-Pacific CW Sprint, and a Tribute to LU8DQ;
and Monthly Collectible - World All-Time SSB Zone Leaders.

Reminder: only 25 more shopping days until CQ WWDX SSB.

73 and good reading,
