CQWW has added a Classic Operator Overlay "The entrant will use only one radio, no QSO alerting assistance, and may operate up to 24 of the 48 hours off times are a minimum of 60 minutes during which no QSO is logged. If the log shows more than 24 hours of operation, only the first 24 hours will be counted for the overlay score. The one radio must not be able to receive while transmitting." Will you enter this new 24 hour category?

Survey Comments
It is in the rules
Item 5 under logging instructions in the 2006 rules states "By submitting a potential high-scoring log to the CQ WW Contest, the entrant agrees to have the log open to the public."

1 ARRL = 2 different rules?
For online logsearch it's forbidden to show date and time = ARRL says: you will lost your status for DXCC !

Here they show the logs - and without permisson of owner ?!

Contest log availability
IMHO all logs for all contests should be available for inspection. Might this give a competitor some advantage or insight into operational strategies? Perhaps, but log availability also tends to insure transparency of conduct in contest operation. In VHF contests the question of captive rovers has been discussed for a long time. Total log availability would put this argument to rest for good as, I am sure, it would for similar discussions in other contests.

Logs
It would be nice if the CQWW logs were available in a single zipped file. This would save the effort of manually downloading each file or having to write some code to harvest the files from the web site.
