Re: Weekly MST CW contest? Exchange Name and Ser Nr

Christopher Scibelli

I hear a bunch of stations calling MST but they are giving out membership numbers.  How does one get a membership number and what club must one join.  I am a CW Ops lifetime member.  All of these different organizations are great for those who want to keep up their CW speed but this is confusing as hell.  I did spend at least half an hour looking for a group but I came up with a big fat zero.

I could've worked twenty stations while I was puttering around on Google.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Weekly MST CW contest? Exchange Name and Ser Nr

Is there a contest logging module that would work for the new weekly MST CW contests?

The exchange is NAME and then SERIAL NR.

Contest announcement and rules are below.

If you had 75 QSOs on all bands with 40 unique call signs, your score is 75 x 40 = 3000.
