IARU HF Contest
This contest is designed to have hams contact as many other amateurs, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world as possible using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands.
Timings for the contest is beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday.
In the past few years it has been possible to work all of Europe in a few hours of the contest start time, so hopefully this year will be outstanding.
Radio being used will be the FT-950 into a 160m Off Center Fed Dipole up at 100 feet. There will also be a 31 foot ground mounted vertical with multiple ground radials laid out.
Here's hoping for a good weekend!
