[CQ-Contest] WPX Single Op Rules

The revised WPX rules fully support single operators that do not want to
utilize QSO alerting systems.  You can operate in the Single Operator
Category as you have done historically, if you desire.  Single Operators are
NOT required to use QSO alerting systems.  The only requirement regarding
QSO alerting systems is that they are precluded in the Single Operator
Classic Overlay category.


The Classic Overlay Category was reduced from 36 hours to 24 hours, after
the inaugural run in 2020, to make it consistent with the Classic Category
duration in CQ WW.  I believe this is sound as many participants are
physically unable or unwilling to operate for longer periods.  Operators
using a single radio that want to operate without QSO alerting systems for
more than 24 hours can do so; their entire period of operation is applicable
to the scoring in the Single Operator category, and their first 24 hours of
operation is valid for the Single Operator Classic Overlay.
