Contest News – 31st March 2013

| March 31, 2013

On 1 April the CW leg of the 80m Club Championships will take place from 1900 to 2030UTC. The exchange is signal report and serial number.

On the afternoon of Easter Monday, 1 April, the IRTS 2m Counties Contest takes place for two hours between 1300 and 1500UTC. There are awards for non-EI stations. If you live in GI or have a good takeoff to Ireland it would be worth giving it a try. The exchange is signal report, serial number and EI and GI stations also send their county.

On 2 April, the 144MHz UK Activity Contest will take place between 1900 and 2130UTC. Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The SSB leg of RoPoCo takes place on the 80m band on 7 April from 1900 to 2030UTC. Both RoPoCos are HF Championship events, with the maximum output power limited to 100 watts. The exchange is signal report and the full postcode received.

In the 3-hour 1st 70MHz contest there are no multipliers, it’s a straight race to accumulate as many kilometres worked as possible. Although Sporadic-E propagation is not beyond the realms of possibility, no long-haul DX was worked in this event last year or in 2011. Maybe this year? Running from 0900 to 1200UTC on 7 April and using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The CW/SSB leg of the SPDX Contest runs for 24 hours from 1500 on Saturday 6 April using the 1.8 to 28MH z bands. Work Polish stations only, giving them a signal report and serial number. Expect a signal report and a single-letter province code in return.
