WAG-test samtidigt som JOTA

Helgen den 18-19 oktober pågår den världsomspännande   Jamboree On The Air där scouter över hela världen får tillfället att kontakta varandra via amatörradio. Samtidigt kör DARC tävlingen Worked All Germany Contest. För att minska problemen för JOTA-stationerna har man infört ett antal contest-fria frekvensegment. Så här skriver DL1DTL (Tack till SM1TDE som tipsade):

Dear Friends!
The Worked All Germany Contest 2008 will be running from Saturday, October
18, 2008, 1500 UTC until Sunday, October 19, 2008, 1459 UTC. The DARC
Committee of DX and HF-Contesting has the great pleasure to invite you to
take part in this interesting contest and work as many German stations as
possible. There is also a good possibility to check your setup for the
coming WWDX-Contests.
We want to bring your attention to the frequency segments regulations for
this contest: According to IARU Region I regulations and from experience in
2006 and 2007 to reduce interference with the participants of JOTA
activities contest operation is not allowed in the following contest-free
sections:80m: CW – 3560 – 3800 kHz, SSB – 3650 – 3700 kHz
40m: SSB – 7080 – 7140 kHz
20m: CW – 14060 – 14350 kHz, SSB – 14100 – 14125 kHz and 14280 – 14350 kHz
15m: SSB – 21350 – 21450 kHz
10m: SSB – 28225 – 28400 kHz

Please find some time to participate in this interesting contest. Even if
you can operate for a few hours only, EVERY log entry will be rewarded with
the new online certificate!

You will find a lot of interesting informations about all the DARC-contests
