Focus South America during WWSA Contest

Focus South America during WWSA Contest

Using a very familiar exchange and format, contesters have a prime option from South America during the second weekend of June, with the WWSA CW Contest, sponsored by the Grupo Argentino de Radiotelegrafia (GACW).

The focus is on South America, as the 24 hour contest runs from 1500 GMT on Saturday 8 June to 1500 on Sunday 9 June.

We has been trying hard in recent years to get more US and Canadian stations to join in the WWSA CW Contest,and those that tune in during the 24 hour contest period should recognize a very familiar rhythm.

The contest exchange is the same as CQ WW, using a signal report and your CQ zone. Example: 59905, 59911, etc.

Multipliers are also counted the same way, making it a familiar format. Country + CQ zone

Just like CQ WW, contacts between stations in your home country are okay for zone or country multipliers, but have zero point value.

Same continent = 1 pt - Different continet = 3 pts.

There is one difference in how your score is totaled, as South American stations are worth extra points - 5 points for stations outside of South America.

It is a kind of a contest in which all the South Americans will play the role of difficult DX since we grant special points.

For this edition, as we did the previous year, we will grant electronic Diplomas to the winners of the most important categories and when the score justifies it.

In our web site you can find multilingual rules, results, pictures and videos, software, etc.

There is a new address for your WWSA 2013 logs =
