March 24-25 SSB (Last full weekend in March)
November 26-27 CW- (Last full weekend in May)
CQ World Wide DX Contest
The CQ WPX is the 2nd largest on the contest calendar and because prefix multipliers are abundant in the USA and JA, it is a great contest for VKs. It is much easier to score big than the CQ WW where proximity to Europe and the West Indies is paramount. A maximum of 36 hrs of operation and the Tribander/Wires category make it ideal for suburban stations. Contacts on 40m/80m and 160m score double and you can work VK for points too. Work as many prefixes and contacts as possible.
