May 20

The CQ WW Contest Committee is pleased to provide a preview of the rules for the 2015 CQ WW DX Contest SSB/CW. This is a public review period to invite any comments before the final rules are announced on June 1, 2015.

Proposed changes:

  • Minor edits to Overlay Category definition.
  • Extended club circle from 175 miles to 200 miles for USA clubs, and from 275 km to 300 km for DX clubs.
  • Changed definition of QSO Alerting Assistance. Now if the technology only provides callsign or multiplier information it is considered assistance.
  • Remote stations must use a callsign permitted by the authorities at the station location.
  • Top scorers are required to submit logs with accurate frequencies.
  • The Observer Program adds the ability for the Committee to request audio recordings of an operation.
