Hi all

The Oceania DX Contest Committee was also disappointed to see the 
announcement of the CQ SA SSB contest for the same weekend as the 
Oceania DX CW Contest. This is the weekend that the Oceania DX CW 
contest has been held on for many decades.

We have already written to the CQ SA SSB contest organisers separately 
about this matter.

It is our view that a continental contest like this should not be 
planned to coincide with the same dates as other existing continental 
contests. There are more than enough weekends available for each 
continent to have a set of dates which do not clash.

Consequently, we have asked the CQ SA SSB organisers to choose dates 
for the new contest which do not clash with our contest or other 
continental contests. We appreciate that it may be too late to change 
the dates for the 2010 event , but we strongly urge the CQ SA SSB 
organisers to consider alternative dates for the 2011 event.

At the very least it would have been helpful if the CQ SA SSB 
organisers had consulted with other affected contest organisers before 
announcing the new contest and dates.
