Make Your Voice Heard During the ARRL International DX Contest (Phone), March 1-2!
The SSB weekend of the ARRL International DX Contest is March 1-2 (UTC), and the DX will be looking for you! In this major event on the radiosport calendar, operators in the US and Canada work stations everywhere else in the world. It’s not only an opportunity to pit your station and operating skills against those of your peers but to expand your knowledge of propagation on the HF and MF bands and tweak your contesting skills.
W/VE amateurs work as many DX stations in as many DXCC entities as possible on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters, while DX stations work as many US and Canadian stations in as many of the 48 contiguous US states and Canadian provinces as possible. US and Canadian stations send a signal report and their state or province abbreviation. DX stations send a signal report and output power.
There are entry categories for individual operators and multioperator teams as well as a choice of power levels in each category, from QRP to full legal limit.
There’s a place for Big Guns, Little Pistols and everyone in between in this contest. The excitement and enthusiasm levels will be high, and it’s a terrific opportunity to boost DXCC totals too.
