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 
ago.
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.
(9 AM Eastern Time on Sunday to 3 AM Eastern Time Monday)
CW: Send "CQ CX"
Phone: Call "CQ Classic Exchange"
SUGGESTED FREQUENCIES:

    CW: 1.810   3.545   7.045   14.045   21.135
28.180 Mc.

    AM:  1.890   3.880   7.290   14.286
21.420   29.000 Mc.

SSB: 3.870  7.280  14.270  21.370  28.490 Mc.

Exchange your name, RST, QTH (state US, province for Canada, country for 
DX),
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.
SCORING
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 
mode.
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
times
RCVRs + XMTRs+ states/provinces/countries
(total each band and mode separately; add totals together)
times
CX Multiplier:
(total years age of all transmitters and receivers used)
SCORE= QSO's x (RX +TX+QTH's) x CX Multiplier

Certificates and appropriate memorabilia are awarded every now and then for 
the highest score, the longest DX, exotic equipment, best excuses and other 
unusual achievements.
