The World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (“WWROF”), a non-profit donor-supported organization, is pleased to announce the completion of a major redesign project for the contest web sites that it maintains and operates on behalf of the contest community. These sites include:
The new design is intended to be more responsive for viewing on limited screen size devices such as tablets and smart phones. All sites now offer a historical database of contest results where you can view scoring records and search results by callsign, operator, or geographic region. Online certificates are provided for recent years for all contests.
We hope everyone enjoys the sites and that they enrich your contesting experience. For more information about WWROF, or to make a donation, please visit http://wwrof.org.
HELP WANTED: WWROF is looking for someone with HTML5, PHP, and MySQL programming skills to help with the maintenance and continued improvement of the sites. If you feel that you may be qualified and want to help, please contact Randy, K5ZD, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How in the world did a M/M contest station deliver a top ten finish with no operators in the shack? Team W4AAW has taken remote operation to the next level, fully automated M/M contesting. There’s even a zero-cost client option. We’ll explain how we did this, give you a taste of what it’s like to operate a M/M station remotely, and tell how you can join us in exploring this new frontier in amateur radio contesting.
