If you have any time to play radio this weekend, please get on and make some contacts in the contest. With prefixes as multipliers, almost anyone can enjoy the fun of being hunted, or find lots of mults to build your own score.
When the contest is over, please submit your log to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our goal is to receive more than 4000 logs this year (see http://www.cqwpx.com/stats.htm).
