CWops 10th Anniversary Celebration

 

In celebration of our tenth anniversary, CWops is holding a special operating event.

Rules

All radio amateurs are welcome to participate.

Timeframe: 0000z, 1 January 2020 to 2359z, 31 January 2020.

Bands: 160m, 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, 10m.

Exchange: Signal report.  Participants are encouraged to send additional information at their discretion such as member number, name, state or province, etc. NOTE: CWT QSOs are valid for scoring purposes and are exempt from these rules.

All QSOs must be made with Special Club Callsigns or CWops members via CW.

Special Club Calls will be activated as well as a number of unique Special Anniversary Celebratory Calls—e.g. K3CWO, GB10CWO or N5A.

Members calling another member or Special Club Callsign station should send “CALL/CWO” or “CALL CWO”.

Scoring: 1 point per unique member or Special Club Callsign worked per band.

Reporting

Send Cabrillo logs to AnniversaryLogs@CWops.org by 9 February 2020. A single Cabrillo log should be submitted.  If multiple Cabrillo Logs were generated during the 10th Anniversary Celebration, please combine them into one file using a text editor.

Continental Awards – CWops Members*

Certificates will be awarded to CWops members achieving the top score or highest QSO total per continent in each of the following categories:

  • Special Club Callsign Station
  • High Power (100W+)
  • Low Power (5W+ to 100W)
  • QRP (5W or less)

A CWops member can only win one continental certificate.

In the event that a CWops member achieves both the highest score and highest total QSOs, then that member would receive the top score certificate and the member next in line would receive the highest total QSOs certificate.

* Includes Special Club Callsign Stations
