We are now less than 48 hours from the start of the 2011 WPX CW Contest.
There may be a small chance of 'cloudiness' in the solar forecast, but not
enough dampen our spirits.  Looking for lots of activity and new records
again this year.

When the contest is over, please use the new web form for log submission.


You can upload your log, have it checked for formatting and all necessary
header info, make corrections, and then submit directly to the robot.  It's
the perfect way to avoid robot anxiety.


Even if you can't operate the full contest, get on the air for as much as
you can.  Please submit your log.  It shows CQ Magazine how much we
appreciate the contest and it helps the log checking.


A few hints:


Watch those dits.  Letters like S, H, and 5, or V and 4, or B and 6, are
often miscopied. 


Copy the serial numbers.  


Need motivation?  Go to the score database
<http://www.cqwpx.com/scorescw.htm?yr=ALL&mode=CW> &mode=CW ), select your
country and call area, then work your way up the scores.  Always feels good
when you pass another score on the list.


73 and good contesting!
