The 1.3GHz UK Activity Contest takes place on 20 November from 2000 to 2230UTC. Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The big event of the month will be the busiest, the CQWW DX CW. It takes place for the full 48 hours of the weekend of the 24th and 25th and invariably keeps the CW portions of the HF bands really busy, especially any frequency where a DXpedition to a rarely activated country operates. Notwithstanding solar outbursts, conditions on the upper HF bands could be very good this year, so QSO totals for the leading stations should be high. The exchange is signal report, and CQ Zone, which for the UK is 14.

The final event is the UK Microwave Group’s Low Band Contest, which takes place on Sunday 25th. Because of the limited hours of daylight at the end of November, please note that this session is two hours shorter than the other three in the series. Running from 1000 to 1400UTC and using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.
