● A description and summary of any measurements taken (including SWR data).

● Photographs of the installed antenna.

● The entry category you’ve chosen for your design.

Only one entry per individual or team will be accepted. Entrants must be ARRL members. ARRL Headquarters staff and QST advertisers are not eligible.

Send your entry to QST, Attn: Antenna Design Competition, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111. Or e-mail your entry to qst@arrl.org. The subject line should include your call sign and the words “Antenna Design Competition” (without quotes).
