    If anyone is looking for a contest with minimum time commitment and as a means of getting in some regular CW practice, I highly recommend the CWops Mini-CWT Test among the ones Rob listed below. Held each Wednesday, there are 3 sessions during the day each only an hour long and not restricted to CWops members. Everyone is welcome.

    For CW contest practice I also use MorseRunner software. It's really amazing...
