Author Topic: Contest exchange procedure  (Read 500 times)

I looked up the exchange required for the CQ DX CW contest, and I see that the exchange for domestic stations is RST & State, while the exchange for DX stations is RST & Power.

I am wondering exactly how does that exchange look on paper? I know that "UR RST IS 599 599 ES MY POWER IS 2 WATTS 73 TU" is probably not going to work with the speedy contest stations, especially at the 10WPM I can send it.

So, exactly what does a contest op need me to send to get the info across as quickly as possible?

I know some of you may be tempted to say, "Just listen and do what the other guys do", but I still copy pretty slow, so that isn't a practical solution. I do listen, ALOT. And I will listen before engaging any contest op, but I would really appreciate a heads-up on how to format my exchange with them.

Thanks for your help.

Usually when the station calls CQ contest, you should just send your callsign.  Then the station calling CQ will respond by sending your call, then the contest exchange.  Then you should just send side of the exchange.
