RSGB’s flagship international HF Contest takes place this weekend, July 28/29th.
The emphasis is on working ‘island’ stations and there’s usually a huge amount of activity from all sorts of islands that you’ve never heard of from all around the world. You can read about the IOTA programme at the IOTA site.
The rules for the IOTA contest can be found here as well as the IOTA contest section, containing all sorts of useful writeups, click here.
If you’ve not looked into the IOTA programme before, this is a great opportunity to do so!
