    Every contest is different, and you don't want to waste time/effort exchanging and logging unneeded info. Rather than searching for each contest sponsor's info, I just use the WA7BNM Contest Calendar (http://www.hornucopia.com). It lists seemingly ALL contests, in a consistent no-nonsense format. The exchange info, and everything else needed is listed. It is sorted several ways (I usually use the 8-day listings).

    I used to be an avid contest operator both from my station and the NK7U mega station and contributed to a lot of award winning both at Joe's station and my own. My contesting has decreased significantly and no longer enter with any intention of trying to win anything. I just do it to give the serious (and not so serious) operators some contacts. When I do play in a contest (like WPX this weekend) I do so S & P and make at least 50 contacts just to insure no one is penalized for a "unique" for having worked me. The exceptions will be next month's 7 land QSO Party where I will make a concerted effort to insure Crook County Oregon is represented. While not a contest, also in May during National Police Week I will operate special events station K7P. My goal in both of those events will be to make as many contacts as possible.

    That URL is obsolete.

    The correct URL is: https://www.contestcalendar.com/

    Just now, it worked for me. http://www.hornucopia.com/ also links to the 3830 website (https://www.contestcalendar.com/ does not).

    Well, I don't get any content with that link -- just a blank page with the following text centered:

    Hornucopia Web Page

    Under construction


    Contest Calendar

    3830 Score Posting Forms




    The "Contest Calendar" text is a link to contestcalendar.com
    and
    The "3838 Score Posting Forms" text is a link to: 3830scores.com

    Easier to just bookmark those locations and go there direct. ;)

    http://www.hornucopia.com/ STILL works for me for both sites.
    It's easier for me to not change anything. :)

    Rhetorically (a response is neither expected nor wanted), I wonder what other sites your browser incorrectly displays...
