The following was noted at the bottom of the ARRL website 10-meter Contest
Rules page (not a contest rule, though):


"Want to try CW in the 10-Meter Contest, but shy away because it seems like
everyone is sending at 35 WPM? There is a solution for operators who want to
run CW at less than 20 WPM. During the contest we encourage slow-speed CW
operation between 28.050 and 28.080 MHz, and between 28.100 and 28.130 MHz.
Look for contacts in these segments and you'll be able to participate at
comfortable code speeds. "
