The very popular RAC Winter Day Contest is one month away. Dec 27, just as the Christmas excitement is dying down is the start of the contest. Coastal Amateur Radio Club suggests we get on board and have some fun before the excitement of New Years eve. The link to the rules can be found on our upcoming events page.
From DX Zone check the story on the Yagi antenna
The most important thing to know is the date and time of the 2015 event: February 7, local time, 8am to 8pm (UTC 1600z Feb 7 to 0400z Feb 8).
Rules, tools, helpful hints, in-depth event analysis/reports and scores from past years, examples of the lovely photo-based certificates and plaques… all available for viewing from links on the BCQP page of the Orca DXCC website. Go to Orcadxcc
As always, top scores in every class receive a one-of-a-kind certificate showcasing beautiful BC . It’s a different photo every year and taken especially for the BCQP certificates and plaques. Definitely shack-worthy.
Coastal Ham Radio reminds you that the CQ WW DX Contest starts on November 29, 2014 at: 0000 UTC. This is the CW contest. Click for all info.
