The Marconi CW Contest is the first VHF event of November and it finishes at 1400UTC today, 4 November. There are 6- and 24-hour sections for Open and Single-op Fixed entries. It’s CW only on the 144MHz band, with the exchange being signal report, serial number and locator.

The 144MHz UK Activity Contest takes place on 6 November from 2000 to 2230UTC. Using all modes the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

On 10 November it’s the very popular Club Calls Contest from 2000 to 2300UTC. Using SSB only on the 1.8MHz band the exchange is signal report, serial number and your club code.

For the whole 48 hours of next weekend, 10 and 11 November, the WAE DX RTTY Contest should keep the RTTY parts of the HF bands buzzing. Everybody can work everybody on RTTY. In WAE events reports of a previously conducted contest QSOs can add significantly to your total score, so it’s well worth investigating in advance of the event how they work. Using the 3.5 to 28MHz bands, the exchange is signal report and serial number.
