    OK, here are the details for the contest coming this weekend:



    • Only contacts with other WDX members count in the contest. The roster may be found as a sticky thread located http://www.worldwidedx.com/threads/wdx-roster-11-30-2014.28909/
    • Channels: 20-29 AM, 30-39 LSB
    • Date/Time: 02/28/15, 0000 Zulu through 03/02/15 0000 Zulu. If you're not sure how UTC time works, check herehttp://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?p1=3875
    • Logs must be posted in the WDX Club Contest Contacts forum by the end of contest. Create only one thread for your contacts. You can edit or reply to your own thread, using it as your log throughout the contest. The format is attached as an Excel file. It may be an excel attachment OR pasted into your thread. At the end of the contest, the contacts forum will be locked, so make sure you upload all of your contacts before the end date/time.
    • There is a 2x multiplier for mobile, portable, or maritime contacts. If you operate as mobile, maritime, or portable during the contest, you are credited with the multiplier for any contacts you make. If you operate as a base, you receive a multiplier for any contact you make with a mobile, portable, or maritime contact. 3x multiplier for any contacts outside of CONUS and Canada. Make sure you clearly designate these in your log
    • No amplifiers allowed, CB legal limit.
    • Contacts will be verified against each others' logs
    • This is an "on your honor" contest and intended to be fun. Please play by the rule.
    • BE A COURTEOUS OPERATOR, PROMOTE THE SITE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HAVE FUN!

    As per normal, anything that may need clarification please ask.

    GG, I heard plenty of Europe this AM, the NE and NW this afternoon, and the World Wide group all over at S9 or better the entire day, so DX is working, but I've not heard one WDX member yet, and I've about twisted the channel knob off on my 2547.

    I've made plenty of contacts too.

    I figure with 10 call frequencies...and maybe 10 members working the contest...we stand about a 1% chance we will ever be on at the same place at the same time.

    Skip is pretty strong today, busting through at 12 watts has been challenging. I am hanging on .395 today - tomorrow the World Radio club will be doing check-in, will drop to .375 (admittedly I am bouncing between .395 and .375 tdoay)

    WDX 2222, I hear a World Radio 2222 in California, but I can't get thru the pile up. Are you a member of World Radio too?

    Yes, I am 2222/ wr2222/wdx2222 san francsico, when wdx I am running legal CB limits (12 watts). If you hear me as WR2222 I am outside of the contest rules.
