| September 6, 2013

SSB Field Day on the 3.5 to 28MHz bands ends today at 1300UTC. The exchange is signal report and serial number.

The 5th 144MHz Backpacker Contest runs today from 1100 to 1500UTC. Running all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The All Asian DX Contest finished today at 2359UTC. UK stations taking part in SSB Field Day sometimes find that All Asian stations don’t want to have QSOs with them because All Asian stations want to be sent the operators’ age, not a serial number, so it can be helpful to have a suitable number to give them. Using the 1.8 to 28MHz bands the exchange is signal report and age, with YLs using 00.

On Tuesday the 432MHz UK Activity Contest runs from 1900 to 2130UTC. Using all modes on the band the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

On Wednesday the 80m Club Sprint continues with the SSB leg running from 1900 to 2000UTC. The exchange is both callsigns, serial number and name.

The Worked All Britain 144MHz QRO Phone Contest takes place for four hours on Sunday 15th. This event has several sections but doesn’t attract many entries, so the potential for winning one of them is high. Running from 1000 to 1400UTC and using both SSB and FM the exchange is signal report, serial number and WAB square.
