OK, the big SSB contest is over and we can plan for the rest of the week 

As usual, CWOps will be running three one-hour CWTs this week, but they 
will be a little different from usual. The latest CW Academy class is 
graduating, and in their honor we are dedicating this week's sessions to 
welcoming CWA graduates. On March 11, please restrain your competitive 
spirit and reduce your speed to 20 wpm or less, to encourage the 
graduates to join in (and for the rest of us to have a slower-paced, 
more relaxed time too – everyone deserves a break now and then!).

The CWA graduates will be sending CWA in place of the CWOps number in 
the CWT exchange. Please say a few words to welcome them when you meet 
them in the CWTs.

Remember the time change that just happened this weekend in most of 
North America. The CWTs will still be at the same UTC times, but that 
means an hour later local time for many of us:

1300Z (= 9 am EDT, 6 am PDT)
1900Z (= 3 pm EDT, noon PDT)
0300Z March 12 (= 11 pm EDT, 8 pm PDT Wednesday)

Also, please keep an eye out for E30FB or other DXpeditions, and QSY to 
avoid them as necessary.

CWops Tests rules are at <http://www.cwops.org/cwt.html> .

CWops Tests exchange - Members: Name and CWops Member Number. 
Nonmembers: Name and State, Province, or DX Country Prefix.

Lots of contacts or just a few, please report your results to 
<http://3830scores.com/> .
