ES OPEN på lördag morgon

På lördag morgon 0500 till 0859 UTC körs testen ES OPEN HF Championship på 40 och 80 meter. Testen går i fyra pass både på CW och SSB.

Om du skall lägga in denna test i HF-cupen, rekommenderas att du delar upp loggen i fyra olika för att HF-cupens robot inte skall ta bort de dubbletter som annars uppstår. Välj rätt namn på CONTEST: taggen i logfilen (Cabrillo). Rätt namn är ES-OPEN-1, ES-OPEN-2, ES-OPEN-3, ES-OPEN-4, beroende på vilken period som loggen avser.

Här är inbjudan från våra vänner i Estland:

ES OPEN HF Championship 2013 will take place on Saturday, April 20th, from 0500 to 0859 UTC on 40m and 80m! We invite you to participate in our nice small contest. There will be many ES stations active and contest is held both in SSB and CW at the same time.

International winners get special trophies from ERAU plus all country winners will be awarded. There is also a special LP trophy.

Please check the results and rules from!

Rules are very easy: the contest consists of 4 equal one hour periods where you can work a station once on both bands. Thus 8 times maximum in total during the contest. Foreign stations can work ES stations only and multipliers are ES region prefixes (0 to 9) on both bands and modes. So 20 for CW/SSB and 40 for Mixed class.

CW QSOs give 2 points and SSB 1 point. Report is RST + QSO number.

Text format logs (cabrillo preferred) should be sent to by May 10th.

On our web page you will find instructions how to use Win-Test, Super-Duper, TRLog and N1MM logging software!

Hope to CU on Saturday!
