Effective with the 2020 contest, there have been some modifications to the CQ WW rules that have been developed and approved by the WW contest committee. In summary:
New Category Nomenclature. The multi-operator category names have been changed to be more consistent with other contests. The CQ WW contest now uses Multi-Single, Multi-Two, and Multi-Multi as the standard for all logs and reporting. No other changes have been made to these categories.
Station Location. Amplifiers are now included in the previously defined 500-meter diameter circle description of station locations.
Paper Logs. Effective with the 2020 contest, paper logs will no longer be accepted for the CQ WW. Uploading logs via the Web is the only approved method for submitting a log. Logs can be uploaded at: cqww.com/logcheck.
A complete listing of the 2020 rules has been posted at <cqww.com/rules.htm>. Updated translations for a variety of languages are also available.
As always, if you have any questions, please submit them via our contact form at <cqww.com/contact/> where you can expect to receive a response as soon as possible.
Best of luck as you prepare for the upcoming contest season in what will arguably be a strange year due to COVID-19! Best of luck and be safe!
