The CWJF - Clube de CW de Juiz de Fora, Board had decided to open the Manchester Mineira Contest to all Americas on next issue. The Manchester Mineira Contest born as domestic Brazilian competition, but after 13 years of ample success, of which 9 opened to South America, the next CWJF MM is honored to include North America, Caribbean and Central America.

The Chairman Edson Fonseca, PY4WAS had work hard to ensure this past success. "Now, is time for a new challenger", say Fonseca in letter for all CWJF members. Soon, some changes in the 2005 rules will be made and published on the CWJF web (

CWJF MM Is the biggest CW contest in South America. Year after year, the CWJF MM grow and hit over 400 entrants in 2005; more then 30 thousands QSOs (average of 77 QSO/entrant). In November will be published 2005 results and the new rules for 2006.

The Absolute Winner of CWJF MM 2004 was Alvaro, PY3CQ (195,776 points), and South America Winner (non-PY) was Arnoldo, LU7EE with 185,983 points.

We hope a massive participation in 2006. Please, spread this information and pin your calendar in next third weekend of May for CWJF MM 2006.
