The Phone Classic Exchange will take place Sunday Feb 24 1300Z to Feb 25 0700Z and Tuesday Feb 26 1300Z to Feb 27 0700Z

The CX is a no-pressure contest celebrating the older commercial and Home Brew 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.

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 as your multipliers are directly related to the age
of the equipment you use! However, you can still work the "great ones" with modern equipment.
