Sure, but just be glad you are not in Japan where the 20m contest runs from 19:00 to 12:59. (7 p.m. to 1 p.m.)

As propagation improves, we should take another look at this.

OK, maybe I'm a little dense, but, why 18 and not 24 hours?

Sprint Rules – Work a 6 hour block of your choice. For Scoring, your 6 hour block will start with the hour you select on the Upload Link page and continue for the next 6 hours.

This is one of our most interesting contests. If you have never tried these different PSK modes, don't be shy. Jump in and give it a go! You’ll be an expert in no time!



Last year, we had 45 Logs submitted, which is the highest since 2016. Lee, N5SLY, won Top Dawg honors and First Place in the 50W category with a spectacular 92 QSOs utilizing all 6 modes.



Let’s see if we can give Lee some competition this year !

Hope to work you in all 6 modes!
