Ed you said:""I don't subscribe to CQ mag, so I never know how I do.  Has the contest become a marketing ploy for subscriptions?""
Well if that is their plan it's not working very well, at least by me. I gave up years ago. I still participate in their contests and submit my logs but that's it. A month, or so, ago I received a Certificate from a 2002 contest. It took 3 years to get here. (I'll bet it only takes them 3 minutes to cash a subscription , or advertiser's, check) 
If I get a Certificate from them fine but from my point of view I'm supporting fellow contesters by participating in a CQ Contest not CQ Magazine.

  Not only that, you receive a rather nice color booklet with all the scores and data, your UBN data is emailed directly to you, and you receive an invitation by email to enter the contest the following year.   I don't subscribe to CQ mag, so I never know how I do.  Has the contest become a marketing ploy for subscriptions?
