I expect that it will be like the CQ WW where only the first 24 hours of operating time counts for the classic overlay score.  Will be clear when the new rules hit the web page.

Does it mean that "Classic" sub-category operators won't be allowed to operate more than 24 hours? My understanding was that CQ WPX (same as in CQ WW DX) allowed more than 24 hours of operation and only first 24 hours are counted for "Classic".
