FOR RELEASE: IMMEDIATE (Wednesday, October 27, 2010)
CQWW DX Contest Expands Recognition for Assisted Categories
       (Hicksville, NY October 27, 2010) –The SSB weekend of the CQ World
Wide DX Contest is this coming weekend, and CQWW Contest Director Bob Cox,
K3EST, is highlighting the expanded and strengthened award program for the
Assisted categories, as of this year’s running of the CQWW Contest. This
applies to both the SSB and CW weekends.
“The CQ WW Contest Committee would like to inform you,” says Cox, “that the
ASSISTED CATEGORY award program has been greatly expanded.” Specific changes
include the following:
– All Low Power and QRP assisted entrants will be specifically listed and
eligible for awards as is already the case for unassisted entries.
– A band-by-band breakdown for all band assisted World, Europe and USA will
be provided within the 2010 results.
– Lastly, the number of plaques available to assisted entrants will be
increased to include Europe Assisted All Band and all World Assisted Single
“We hope that this action provides an incentive for entrants using a QSO
spotting system to join the assisted category,” Cox explains.
K3EST also reminds CQWW participants that the log submission deadlines have
been changed. SSB logs must be submitted by Nov. 21, 2010 and CW logs by
Dec. 21, 2010.
