The most popular RTTY contest of the year is less than a week away. Over
15,000 different call signs are expect to be active from over 200 countries.
It is a great opportunity to have a lot of fun working stations on RTTY
RULES: See http://www.cqwwrtty.com/rules.htm for the contest rules,
including translation into 12 non-English languages. Translations are
provided as a convenience and the English language rules prevail. NOTE THAT
THE RULES PLUBLISHED IN THE JULY ISSUE OF CQ MAGAZINE INADVERTENTLY OMITTED
THE MS LP CATEGORY WHICH IS STILL VALID PER THE RULES ON THE WEBSITE.
SEARCHABLE PAST RESULTS DATABASE: Go to
http://www.cqwwrtty.com/scoresry.htm?yr=ALL for a searchable database of all
past results in this contest. Refine your search for any category you
desire, e.g, SO Assisted Low Power W6, to see what it would take to set a
new record or just to see what kind of result is possible. Note also that
online certificates are not available for local printing for the past few
LOG SUBMITTAL: See http://www.cqwwrtty.com/logs.htm for information on
submitting your log. Every log is valuable for the overall log checking
process, whether a casual operation or seriously competitive. Please submit
your log by the deadline of 4 October 2013 (2359 UTC). Logs received after
the deadline are still valuable for log checking but may not be eligible for
awards (certificates and plaques).
MixW USERS: Victor R3BB has just released a new DLL for the CQ WW RTTY
Contest which will properly configure the Cabrillo file format after the
contest. It was released 15 September 2013 and updated on 21 September
2013. http://www.digitalrus.ru/Files/StatsCQWWRTTY.zip Using MixW without
this new driver will not create a proper Cabrillo file unless the
instructions on http://www.cqwwrtty.com/logs.htm#MixW_Notes are followed
before and after the contest.
I look forward to a huge participation next weekend!
