Warm up those keys, CQ WPX CW contest starts at
0000 saturday (May 25) and runs for 48 hours
until 2359 sunday(May 26).

Exchange is simple...Signal report (ALWAYS 599/5nn)
and serial number.

Band conditions suck right now, so this is going to be a loooooong 48 hours.

Yep, if anyone actually used a key for the contest they could warm them up. Might as well use PSK63 to send meaningless signal reports. No thanks, I'd rather watch fruit rot.

This forum said it was about contesting. Is there one for rotting fruit? I had a great time. 574 Q's with a 43' vertical. It's all the condo will allow and I'm pushing the edge of the envelope. I can't imagine what they would say if a backhoe pulled up and dug a hole for a tower. hi!
