To promote activity on 6m during the winter, the UK Six Metre Group has introduced a new event to complement their Summer E’s Contest. Called the Winter Marathon, it will be held over a two-month period, commencing on 1 December 2013 and ending on 31 January 2014. It’s a 100 percent Locator square chase, with no points for individual QSOs, but as well as normal QSOs you can claim the squares worked in other 6m contests over the period. The exchange is signal report and locator.
The ARRL 10m Contest ends at 2359 today, 15 December, having been running for 48 hours. In this event everyone can work everyone. Please visit the www.arrl.org to see all the categories. The exchange is signal report and serial number with Ws, VEs and XEs sending their State or Province code.
On Tuesday the 1.3GHz UKAC takes place from 2000 to 2230UTC. Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.
