Dear fellow contesters,

Next weekend, September 13/14th, the 54th season of the Worked All 
Europe DX Contest is going to continue with the Phone event. The 
official rules and much more information can be found in the Internet: 
http://waedc.de .

In 2008 we also commemorate the 60th anniversary of the "Worked All 
Europe" award. A WAE60 Marathon is under way since August (WAE DX 
Contest CW) which finally comes to an end now with the WAE DX Contest 
SSB next weekend. Please visit http://wae60.de where you can find much 
more information.

Please be once again aware that in the context of this WAE60 Marathon 
Europeans might be interested to work other Europeans too, which is 
unusual for the WAE DX CW and SSB contests. These EU-EU QSOs are fully 
legal, of course, and can/should be present in the WAEDC contest logs as 
well. While they will not count as points for the contest score, they 
won't hurt either and will certainly count for the special WAE60 award. 
Thus, if you are an European and another European is calling you during 
the contest, don't get angry this time - just work and log him and after 
a few seconds he is gone again.

Finally I hope to meet you on the bands during the contest.

Enjoy and be ready for the famous QTCs!

Best 73
