The next mini-CWT contests, sponsored by the CW
Operators' Club, run as three entirely separate
one-hour events as follows.

Wednesday, 14th August 1300 - 1359z, and
1900 - 1959z. Thursday, 15th August 0300 - 0359z.

These events take pace on the second and fourth
Wednesday/Thursday of each month.

Anyone can take part.  You can enter any number of
the sessions - they are scored individually and
are CW-only on the 6 HF contest bands.   Rules at

SD V17.11 is free from ei5di.com.

   Select the "CWops Mini-CWT" template.

Everyone works everyone.  Exchange your Name and
CWops membership number (no 5NN).  Non-members
send their State, Province or Country Prefix in
place of membership number.

One point per QSO, with a multiplier for each
unique valid callsign worked, regardless of band.

When you type a member's call, SD pre-fills their
name and number - if correct, press Enter to log
the QSO.  Otherwise, over type with the correct
information.  For non-members, enter name and QTH
with a space between them - for example PAUL EI.

If you hear a number, and want to know the call,
type the number in SD's callsign field. Press Enter
after the number to pre-fill the QSO ready for
logging, otherwise press Minus to clear the logging
line.  This is easier to do than to describe.

Logs are not needed.  Post your summary score
(member and non-member totals by band) from SD's
Score Window at http://www.hornucopia.com/3830score/
