You have to remember where the forum is on the Internet.  
BTW for a quick link to the lists that run on contesting.com 
go here:


And then follow the link in the left menu area.

Many of you that read CQ Contest (or any list on contesting.com) might 
not be aware that most of the contesting.com lists are archived 
on the web in two different archivers.  All of the posts are archived 
in the archiver that is built in to the mailman software.  For the 
CQ-Contest list that version of the archives lives here:


Several years ago we added another version of the archives
that have a much better (in my view) look and feel.  These 
also have a built in indexing system that allows you to search
the archives fairly well.  Of course you can also use Google to 
search all of these lists.  This version of the archives live here:


You can get to either of these archives from the 'list info' page:


And you can get to the list info page for any list from the home
page menu at:


You can also get there by an even more direct route by going 
to this URL:
