Lots of people who enter the WPX contest would love to receive a certificate
for their efforts. Unfortunately, it is too expensive to mail one to
everyone, so we have had to limit providing certificates just to those who
won their region and category. I am pleased to announce that all
participants of the WPX Contest SSB/CW for 2007-2008 can now download
electronic versions of their certificates in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format.
The new electronic certificates enable you to print out your certificate on
your own color printer. Simply go to the on-line searchable score database
(http://www.cqwpx.com/score_db.htm) and search for your score. Then click
on the [cert] link to generate the pdf file. Your browser may pop-up a
security warning, which you will need to accept, before the file will
download to your computer.
All electronic certificates include the operator list, category, score, and
country ranking. An additional ranking is included for scores in the world
top 50 for the entrant's category.
Special thanks to Tom Morrison, K5TM, for his assistance in the programming
to enable the new certificates. With so many variations of calls and
categories, please let me know if you find anything that doesn't look right.

PS - The WPX CW Contest is May 30-31. This is one of those rare years when
the contest does not fall on the Memorial Day holiday in the USA or on the
bank holiday in UK/Europe. Looking forward to lots of activity and a new
sunspot or two!
