2017 CQWW CW Contest Scoring Change

A change in scoring methodology for duplicate contacts (dupes) in the CW weekend of the 2017 CQ World Wide DX Contest led to an inconsistency with the standards by which logs submitted for the SSB weekend of the same contest were scored. After considerable discussion and debate among members of the CQWW Contest Committee and consultation with CQ management, it has been decided to restore the original scoring methodology and to rescore all CW logs for 2017. It is not expected that this will result in any changes to the order of finish. Updated scores will be published online on the CQ website <> and the CQ World Wide DX Contest website <>. The contest community will be notified once the re-scoring is completed.
