| August 21, 2015

The UKSMG Summer Marathon is now over, and the closing date for entries was set at the 17th of August. However, as there were a few technical issues uploading logs earlier this year, the submission closing date has been extended to Friday the 4th of September. Details are on the website.

On Tuesday two events take place from 1900 to 2130UTC with the same exchange of signal report, serial number and locator. The 50MHz UK Activity Contest uses all modes on the band and the SHF UK Activity Contest uses the 2.3 to 10GHz bands.

On Thursday the 80m Club Sprint runs from 1900 to 2000UTC. Using SSB only the exchange is both callsigns, serial number and name.
Next weekend, on the 30th, the UK Microwave Group contest runs from 0600 to 1800UTC. Using all modes on the 5.7 and 10GHz band the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The IRTS 2m Counties Contest also takes place on the 30th from 1300 to 1500UTC. Using SSB and FM only, the exchange is signal report and serial number, with EI and GI stations also giving their county.

The Romanian Amateur Radio Federation is running the YO DX HF Contest from 1200UTC on the 29th to 1159UTC on the 30th. Foreign stations will transmit signal report and serial number Romanian stations will transmit a signal report plus the abbreviation of the county or BU for stations from Bucharest.
