There are two overlapping AM Phone events this weekend, the AWA AM QSO Party and the Phone section of the Classic Exchange.  You are likely to run across stations working both events, and you certainly can count your contacts in both of them.


The Classic Exchange information is at http://www.classicexchange.org/ , click on January 2013 CX Announcement.  You will see that the CX rules are a bit different, in particular the same station may be worked more than once on each band with different equipment, either on your end of the QSO or on his end.  The CX recommended center frequencies are 1885, 3870,7290, 14286, 21240, and 29000 kHz.  The 75, 40 and 20 meter frequencies are within the AWA recommended segments, so there should be a good opportunity for AWA stations to make contacts with CX stations.  There will also be CX activity with vintage SSB equipment centered at 3895, 7280, and 14270.  There is often CX AM activity on 14270 as well, so tune down that far for potential AWA contacts.  


The CX hours are 1400 UTC, 9 a.m. EST on Sunday to 0800 UTC, 3 a.m. EST on Monday.


Hope to work you on both events, 73,


Jim Hanlon, W8KGI
