1a. PA2REH 720 *
1b. DK1AX 312
CHECKLOG: PA7DW, F5VDP
* note: Due to a mistake I made the score of PA2REH was added later, thatís why there are two number ones in OM CW.
First of all, thankyou for participating in the Midwintercontest 2010! It is a pleasure as always to receive and check your contest logs. I hope you all enjoyed the contest, although I did hear complaints about collisions with other contests, specially on Saturday in CW. Since this problem on Saturday is increasing every year and also in the hope that more people will participate in the future I have decided on some big changes. First of all a change in name, the Midwintercontest will now be referred to as Midwinter QSO party, this is to emphasize the relaxed atmosphere in which this contest takes place. Second big change is that from now on the entire contest will be held on 1 day, that is the second Sunday in January. The contest time will be from 10.00 to 14.00 UTC. Third change is that you will be able to compete in one of 6 categories (now 5), I have added the All Mixed category, in which both YLís and OMís can compete in the same category! Also everyone can work everyone, YLís count for 5 points and OMís count for 3 points. Big change number four is that every worked YL counts for a multiplier!! So no longer will the worked DXCC countries count but the total number of worked/heard YLís!!
To make the contest logging easier in the future, I will try to get the Midwinter QSO party into several contest logging programs, like N1MM.
Here are the changes again:
1 Midwintercontest is now Midwinter QSO party
2 QSO party is held on Sunday from 10 to 14 UTC
3 New Category: All Mixed
4 the total number of YLís count for Multipliers, not DXCC
Please help me spread the new contest information and help to get more YLís active on HF. I hope to hear you all in 2011,
