2017 RST Special Event

Members of the North Country DX Association (NCDXA) will be active the entire month of March 2017 from several different locations in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Greenland using all NCDXA “RST” fixed station callsigns KL7RST, VY1RST, VE8RST, VY0RST and OX7RST to further promote Amateur Radio in northern North America.

This is their 2nd annual special event with the addition of OX7RST, more rovers and fixed stations, new QSLs and certificates! Activity will be on all modes on 160-6 meters and the WARC bands are permissible.

SWLs are welcome to participate. The object is to work or log (SWL) as
many NCDXA “RST” stations as you can from their different locations. To
participate you need to work each “RST” station only once per their QTH,
band and mode. No cross band, cross mode or remote operating allowed.
Portable rover “RST” stations will also participate.

Some of the portable stations are: KL7RST/KL7, VY1RST/VY1, VY1RST/KL7, VE8RST/KL7 and VE8RST/VY1 …etc. Watch the DX spots as they plan to have stations on from a Canadian research station near the North Pole on Ellesmere Island, a diamond mine in NWT, an Alaskan bush school, an OM/YL team from Nuuk, Greenland, and many other cities up north large and small.

For your convenience, they will upload their logs to the ARRL’s LoTW.
