“CQ’s November issue is a mini contest special . . . with plenty for the non-contester as well!
We start with a behind-the-scenes look at a big-gun operation from the Canary Islands during last year’s CQWW CW weekend (the author calls it “Field Day on Steroids”!), followed by a real Field Day story about a pair of hams who operated the event together twice – with a 40-year gap in between!
We’ve also got the CW results of the 2016 CQ WPX CW Contest and the rules for both the 2017 CQWW 160-Meter Contest and the 2017 CQ DX Marathon.
There’s plenty for non-contesters as well, starting with a look at two ham friends who set out to put seven National Parks on the Air in seven days! We also take a look at hooking up ham radio foxhunting with geocaching, report on the results of the Amateur Radio Direction Finding World Championships in Bulgaria, where U.S. foxhunters won seven medals. Plus, columnist KH6WZ recounts his experience with tearing apart and rebuilding a Heathkit vacuum tube volt meter (VTVM).
Also, Propagation Editor NW7US firms up his predictions for the CQWW SSB weekend (Oct. 29-30), and provides an initial projection for the CW weekend (Nov 26-27). Neither looks great, but remember … the CQWW makes its own propagation!
That’s a brief look at what’s coming up in the November issue of CQ magazine. For information on becoming a CQ subscriber – to either our print or digital edition – click here! “
