CWops Tests this Wednesday at 1300Z and 1900Z and Thursday at 0300Z. Join
us for midweek contest fun. Everyone welcome--you don't have to be a CWops


CW fans, we named the CWops Test a test, not a contest. CWTs offer
something for everyone. You can get on and make a few contacts with fellow
CW enthusiasts. You can get on and extend a friendly welcome to someone
trying a CWT for the first time. Or, if inclined, you can wet your
competitive juices and try for a high score. Or all of the above, all in
one session.

Ten-meter rally 28.028 at 1930Z. Let's try to leverage ten by showing up at
1930Z instead of spreading out on ten for the whole hour.

CWops Test suggested frequencies are 28 to 38 kHz up from band edges, plus
or minus as activity dictates. As always, please be particularly
considerate of ongoing QSOs and DXpedition operations. Please slow down
when called at a slower speed-we want everyone to feel welcome.

Lots of Qs or just a few, please submit your results for each session at
http://3830scores.com/ .

I continue to record all my CWT QSOs over all three sessions. If you would
like to hear your signal at W6SX, email me, and I'll send you short MP3
files of our contacts.

*The first rule of CW is to have fun and to share the fun. *CW Exuberantly,
