These events will be 60 minutes in duration and held on the SECOND & the FOURTH Wednesday of each month.  Six bands are to be used – 10, 15, 20, 40, 80 and 160m.  Suggested frequencies are from 018 to 028 kHz up from band edges, plus or minus as activity dictates.  There will be 3 events at times that favor different geographic areas on this same day.  A member can participate in any or all of these.  Each of these is also open to non-members.  However, you must submit separate results for each one.  It will be a good opportunity to meet other CW fans who may be interested in CWops membership.

Purpose: Meet and greet and show activity on the bands.  It’s a good public relations opportunity for CWops for those who haven't heard of us yet.  It’s also an opportunity for interested non-members to garner the required nominations for membership.

Times:  On the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 1300 - 1400z (favoring Asia/Pacific); 1900 - 2000z (favoring Europe/Africa); and 0300 - 0400z –Thursday (Wednesday evening in US/Canada).

NOTE: See Scores Page for exact dates of CWT each month.

Exchange:  Call "CQ CWT".  New Exchange:  Just send your First Name and CWops member number. Non-members will send First Name, and State, Province, or DX Country Prefix.  This will allow most operators to use a general-purpose logging program or a paper log if necessary.  A dedicated CWOPs module has been written for N1MM by Nick, NA3M.  Other logging programs are also available. See our website for more information http://www.cwops.org/software.html

Scoring: The final score can be calculated by counting 1 point per QSO (work a station once per band only) and multiply total points by the number of unique calls worked.  If you had 75 QSOs with 40 different calls, your score is 75 x 40.  State which power class: QRP, LP, HP.

Reporting:  Report results by time segment: CWT-1300, CWT-1900, CWT-0300.  Scores must be submitted within 48 hours to be included in our listing.  Thanks to Bruce, WA7BNM, everyone can post results on the 3830 reflector.  Use this address:

Fill out the appropriate section for the time period.  No awards presented.  We will post the complete results on our Website and Reflector each month: http://cwops.org/scores.html
