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.

Up to 2,000 point bonus will be awarded to every CX participant who operates the same model rig as their Novice station.
Three QSOs are required.
One receiver and one transmitter may be counted and are worth 1,000 points each. Multiple version of the same piece of gear will not increase the bonus.

Up to 2,000 point bonus will be awarded to every CX participant who operates a transmitter with 4 tubes and/or less or a receiver with 6 tubes or less.
Three QSOs (each) are required.

Awards will be given in two classes: 1. Three or fewer receiver-transmitter pairs 2. Four or more receiver-transmitter pairs.
