This message is being sent to several reflectors in hopes that it will be
widely disseminated. I apologize if you see it more than once.
This year's CQ World Wide VHF Contest will be the THIRD weekend in July
starting at 1800Z July 20, 2002 and ending at 2100Z July 21, 2002. Note that
this is ONE WEEK LATER than it has been in past years. The change in dates
is in response to numerous requests by the participants and potential
participants. The old weekend, the second weekend in July was in direct
conflict with the IARU contest/WRTC and occurred only 1 week after the
European Field Day.
Rules can be found in .pdf format at
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to read this file. If you do not have
this program already on your computer - and you should - it is available
I am aware that the 6 Meter World Wide DX Club (http://6mt.com) holds its
second sprint on the Saturday of that weekend but that should be no
conflict. The exchanges are the same so you can enter both if you so
Results of last year's contest will appear in June 2002 CQ magazine. Results
are not available on the Web.
Certificates for last year's contest should be sent to the winners in the
next few weeks.
Conditions last year were super - let's hope conditions this year are just
as good. See you all in July.
