Contest News – 14 December 2014

| December 12, 2014

The UK Six Metre Group’s Winter Marathon began on the 1st and continues for two months. The Winter Marathon isn’t a contest in the traditional sense; it’s basically a way of promoting activity on 6m during the winter. There are no points for individual QSOs; just for working as many locator squares as possible. You can claim the squares worked in any 6m contest over the period, as well as non-contest QSOs. The exchange is simply signal report and locator.

The ARRL 10m Contest ends its 48 hours at 2359UTC today, the 14th. In this event everyone can work everyone. It is phone and CW on the 28MHz bands with the exchange being signal report and serial number. American and Canadian stations send their state or province code. It has too many sections to list here, so please visit the ARRL website to see them all.

On Tuesday the 1.3GHz UK Activity Contest runs from 20.00 to 22.30UTC. Using all modes the exchange is the usual signal report, serial number and locator.
