Contest News – 16 March 2016

| March 14, 2014

You will need to be up very early if you want to catch the start of the BARTG HF RTTY Contest—2am, to be exact. It runs for 48 hours on the 15th to the 17th. Exchange signal report, a serial number and the time.

The Russian DX Contest ends at 1200UTC today, the 16th. There are lots of entry categories, mostly for single ops. An interesting twist is that it is permitted for a single-op station to make two single-band entries. Usually this would be to take advantage of bands that aren’t open at the same time. The exchange is signal report and serial number with Russian stations sending their Oblast code too.

The Worked All Britain 3.5MHz Phone contest takes place today, Sunday, 16 March, from 1800 to 2200UTC. The exchange is signal report, serial number and WAB square. Entries need to be with the contest manager by 6 April 2014. Full details of the rules and log sheets may be obtained from the WAB website http://wab.intermip.net or from the contest manager G3XKT by email aebbooks@ntlworld.com.

The 1.3GHz UK Activity Contest runs from 2000 to 2230UTC on 18 March. Using all modes on the band the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

On Thursday the SSB leg of the 80m club championships takes place from 2000 to 2130UTC. The exchange is signal report and serial number.
