For those "in the know" see ya Sunday. For those who don't, read on, and
then see ya Sunday!
Classic Exchange "CX"
The CX is a no-pressure contest celebrating the older commercial and
homebrew equipment that was the pride and joy of ham shacks many decades
The object is to encourage restoration, operation and enjoyment of this
older "Classic" equipment. However, 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. You can still work the "great ones" with modern equipment.
WHEN - WHERE - WHAT
The CX will run from 1400 UTC February 13 to 0800 UTC February 14, 2005.

Exchange your name, RST, QTH (state US, province for Canada, country for
receiver and transmitter manufacturer/model (homebrew send final amp tube or
transistor type) and other interesting conversation.
The same station may be worked with different equipment combinations on each
band and in each mode.
Non-participating stations may be worked for credit.
Multiply total number of QSO's (all bands and all modes) by
the sum of the different types of receivers and transmitters you worked
(transceivers count both as a transmitter and a receiver)
plus the number states/provinces/countries worked on each band and each
Multiply that product by your CX multiplier, which is the total of years old
of all receivers and transmitters used.
Each receiver or transmitter must be used in a minimum of three QSO's to be
counted in the multiplier.
If the equipment is homebrew, count it as a minimum of 25 years old unless
actual construction date or date of its construction article (in the case of
a 'reproduction") is older.
Total QSO's all bands
RCVRs + XMTRs+ states/provinces/countries
(total each band and mode separately; add totals together)
(total years age of all transmitters and receivers used)
SCORE= QSO's x (RX +TX+QTH's) x CX Multiplier
