Randy, Outstanding work by N2NC and his team for recording the CQWW scores  
for 1967-1968.  It is wonderful to see our old scores from ET3USA !!!   
ET3USA has not existed since about 1974, but the memories linger.
Many tnx, George

OK, I have to ask:
Just what is your motivation in  asking such a question?  Do you have a 
specific contest in  mind?

With respect to CQWWDX, the answer is the same as already posted  for SS.  

I. OBJECTIVE: For amateurs around  the world to contact as many other 
amateurs in as many CQ zones and countries  as possible.
[end snip]

Of course, in CQWWDX, even if it were  allowed, you would get zero points 
and hence no score impact (unless you were  the only QSO with your 
country/zone).  Was that your motivation in  asking?  Are you going some place really 
rare and you don't want to miss  your own mult(s)?

Get your competitive juices flowing, warmup  for California QSO Party.

CWops Test fun Wednesday/Thursday. CWTs offer  something for everyone.
Everyone welcome--you don't have to be a CWops  member to join the fun. You
can get on and make a few contacts with fellow  CW enthusiasts. You can get
on and extend a friendly welcome to hams trying  a CWT for the first time.
Try for a high score. Or all of the above, all in  one session.

Three separate one-hour sessions.  http://www.cwops.org/cwt.html .

Lots of Qs or just a few, please report  your results at
http://www.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,

Paul, I like that term "innovators" which you use  below.

In our country the PT&T authority includes  innovation in our rules (they 
use the words "advancement" and "advancing")  lest we still would be 
transmitting sparks and receiving with a galena  crystal.

Innovation >>IS<<  mandatory!



Subpart A?General Provisions

?97.1???Basis and  purpose.

The rules and regulations in this part are designed to provide  an amateur 
radio service having a fundamental purpose as expressed in the  following 




(b) Continuation and  extension of the amateur's proven ability to 
contribute to the ADVANCEMENT of  the radio art.

(c) Encouragement and improvement of the amateur service  through rules 
which provide for ADVANCING skills in both the communication and  technical 
phases of the  art.

N2NC and his team of bleary  eyed typists have been at it again.  Two
additional years, 1967 and  1968, have been added to the CQWW online score

Search the  database: http://www.cqww.com/score_db.htm

View the activity trend:  http://www.cqww.com/stats.htm

There are now 160,236 entries recorded  for SSB and 152,658 for CW.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in  the CQWW over the years and to
the typists for converting the paper results  into electronic form.
