The WPX CW contest is now lewss than 2 weeks away. This is my favorite contest of the year. Fortunately there is still time for conditions to improve a bit, it some sunspots perk up soon, but otherwise it looks like it could be tough sledding. What is your pre contest strategy on this one?

I'm still working on Iron Pants.  ;-)  My biggest problem is getting bored and/or frustrated and stomping off to do something else.

If I can just convince myself that four hours at 10 Qs per hour is 40 more Qs than I'd have otherwise...

That's it, really.  Oh, and watching the grayline more assiduously, checking the bands more often.  

Cheers,

You're NQ3X and you have trouble getting WPX qso's?

How many other NQ3's are there in the contest?!

This contest may be fun if 15 meters opens. My strategy is to avoid getting a headache from QRM on 20 meters!!

Alas!

Having a weird prefix is no guarantee of success in the WPX, although it certainly helps!

A big signal, combined with an interesting prefix is the winning combination; unfortunately the hard part is the big signal bit...
