Contest News – 19 January 2020

| January 17, 2020

On Tuesday the 1.3GHz UK Activity Contest runs from 2000 to 2230UTC. Using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

Next weekend, the CQ 160m DX contest runs from 2200UTC on the 24th to 2200UTC on the 26th. It’s CW only on the 1.8MHz band and the exchange is signal report and CQ zone. Note that US stations also send their state and Canadians send their province.

The BARTG RTTY Sprint contest runs from 1200UTC on the 25th to 1200UTC on the 26th. Using the 3.5 to 28MHz contest bands the exchange is simple the serial number of the contact.

Don’t forget that the UK Six Metre Group’s Winter Marathon runs until the end of January. There are no specific operating modes or periods. Just work as many locator squares as you can on the 50MHz band.
