UKIECC 80m Contest6th October 2021 0 By 2E0TXE
These twice-monthly one hour contests are timed to coincide with the hours of darkness over most of the UK, Ireland and Europe. They are open to all stations anywhere to enter, and the scoring is distance based – similar to the very successful 160m Stew Perry Contest. The 2021-22 series runs from September 2021 until April 2022 – a total of 14 contests (7 on SSB, 7 on CW).
The contest exchange is simplified – no RST should be sent. These contests aim to encourage high quality operating, where each operator can balance speed of operating against logging accuracy. Those operators that can develop both of these essential skills while working the most stations at the *greatest distances* will always do best. Scores will accumulate to give overall winners in each section at the end of the series.
These are primarily single-operator events, but individual entrants may also wish to enter our Teams competitions, either by forming a team of 3 entrants, with 1 reserve (i.e. a team of 4, but only 3 scores count in each contest) or as a team of two entrants. You have until the end of November 2021 to register your Team for this Teams competition.
