The Fall 2019 CW Classic Exchange will take place Sunday Sept 15 1300Z to Sept 16 0700Z and Tuesday Sept 17 1300Z to Sept 18 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.
