The full results for the 2001 Oceania DX contest are now available for viewing on-line at the
Oceania DX Contest web site - go to http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/update/contests/Oceania.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the 2001 winners and thank you to everyone who participated.

The Contest Committee was very pleased to see a 57% increase in the total number of logs received
for the 2001 contest, including a 60% increase in logs from Oceania. The increase indicates that our
strategy to rejuvenate the contest is working. We are looking for even greater participation in
2002 - especially from Oceania stations.

I would especially like to acknowledge the Committee who managed the promotion, log checking and
distribution of the results for the 2001 contest - the Committee members are VK5GN, VK3TZ, VK4UC,

The 2002 Oceania DX contest is to be held on the following dates and times

PHONE Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 5 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 6 October
CW Contest: 0800 UTC Saturday 12 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 13 October

The 2002 rules are available from http://www.nzart.org.nz/nzart/update/contests/Oceania.

This will be the 66th Oceania DX Contest - lets make it the biggest and best yet.  Note that this
contest is a great opportunity to warm up for CQ WW! Please spread the word about the contest and
encourage others to "have a go".

We look forward to working you in the 2002 contest.

Chair Oceania DX Contest Committee
