Sun Feb 2 01:22:40 EST 2020
The Phone Classic Exchange will take place Sunday Feb 9 1400Z to Feb 10 0800Z and Tuesday Feb 11 1400Z to Feb 12 0800Z.
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.
There are two (2) entry categories per mode: ►Three or fewer receiver-transmitter pairs ►Four or more receiver-transmitter pairs.
