2017 CQ WPX RTTY Contest

February 11-12, 2017

Starts: 0000 GMT Saturday
Ends: 2359 GMT Sunday

Identical wording is used for both the RTTY and CW/SSB rules where the intent is the same.  However, there are some key differences for the RTTY mode:

  • No 1.8 MHz operation

  • QSO alerting assistance is allowed in all categories, i.e., there is no Single-Op Assisted category

  • Single-Op 30-hour limit (vs. 36)

  • Contact points:
    – Different-country contacts within any continent (not just North America) get 2 or 4 points
    – Same-country contacts get 2 points on the low bands
