One of the main reasons I wanted to write was to fill|
you in on several ideas I have and give you chance to
think about them and then perhaps we can discuss them
around Christmas time. The first idea is for CHN to
sponsor a contest much like the QRP or CHC QSO Parties
with the purpose being to work as many counties as
possible. Maybe a better way to describe it would be
like a state QSO party on a nationwide basis. ......
As you well know, QSLing in contests is always a
problem. A solution to this might be the exchange of
"SURE" for those willing to QSL upon receipt. The
remainder of the exchange could be any or all of these:
QSO number, RST, first name, county, or state.
Time: July 29 0000GMT to July 30 2400GMT (48 hours).
No time limits.
Mode: CW only. Stations may be worked once per band.
Frequencies: 3535, 7035, 14070, 21070, 28070. Novice
3725, 7175, 21175.
Call: CQ CH de K3XXX K
Exchange: QSO Nr/ RST/ County/ State/ QSL item (SURE
if you answer all cards received, SASE if you require
s.a.s.e. for your QSLs)
Scoring: Number of QSOs times (number of counties plus
Awards: Top 3 overall, top 3 each state, top 1 each DX
Logs: Must contain exchange sent and received and be
sent to K3WWP* no later than Aug 30, 1967. Enclose
s.a.s.e. if contest results are desired

Regards a date for your anticipated CW County Contest.|
I would suggest the month of July rather than August.
The latter generally shows more contest activity.
To date I only have the Venezuelan on July 1/2 and the
Colombian on July 22/23. That leaves three week-ends in
July open.............That would make July 8/9 and July
29/30 as the most desirable........I would say either
one of the above two weekends would be OK, with the
last 29/30 as the one most likely to be free of other
......Before I begin, I will say that all these expenses are maximized on the basis of expecting 250 logs to be submitted and the distribution of 200 certificates. So here's the breakdown: PAPER 6.00 200 9" x 12" clasp envelopes 10.00 Printing (2 color) 25.00 Postage 20.00 61.00 total.
