Announcing Contest Dates for 2018, 2019, and 2020


Rick - N7WE
 

To bring year-to-year uniformity to our contest dates your Club leadership has established some guidelines that will be followed.  First, the actual date will be specified as the day the contest begins and second, the day will always be UTC day.  Here are the rules and the dates for the next 3 years:

The only change from past years is returning the Three Day Weekend contest to its original slot of following the Memorial Day weekend, as opposed to being on the holiday.  Matt – AK4MK - 070 Executive Director said: “ Making this change will avoid both the holiday weekend AND the low band interference from the CQ CW contest and allow synergy with 10-10 Open Season contest.”
