The CX is a no-pressure contest celebrating the older commercial and homebrew equipment that was the pride and joy of ham shacks many decades ago. The object is
to encourage restoration, operation and enjoyment of this older Classic equipment.
However, you need not operate a Classic rig to participate in the CX. YOU MAY USE ANY RIG in the contest although new gear is a distinct scoring disadvantage.
You can still work the "great ones" with modern equipment.
There are new Bonus Scores for using the same model rigs as your Novice station and for using an RME receiver and for using a WRL transmitter.
Awards will be given in two classes: 1. Three or fewer receiver-transmitter pairs 2. Four or more receiver-transmitter pairs.
