Contest News – 4 December 2016

| December 2, 2016

The 144MHz AFS contest runs from 1000 to 1600UTC Sunday, the 4th. Using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The ARRL 160m CW contest ends Sunday at 1600UTC. Work the USA, US territories and Canada. The only time there is a path is when it’s dark at both ends of the QSO so it’s unlikely that much activity will be in evidence from the UK as this edition is broadcast.

On Tuesday it’s the 144MHz UKAC, which runs from 2200 to 223UTC. All modes are used on the 2m band and the exchange is RST, serial number and locator.

Next weekend sees the ARRL 10m contest, running from 0000 on the 10th to 2359 on the 11th. Using CW or phone, the report is RST plus serial number, with Ws, VEs and XEs also sending their state or province code. There are a number of categories in this contest so it will pay to check the ARRL website for details.

Finally, a reminder that the UK Six Metre Group Winter Marathon continues on 6m until the end of January. Details are on the website.
