EADX 6M CONTEST
OBJECTIVE: Fomenting the activity and experimentation in this magic band, field day operations as well as CW. In Spain there are still some areas where the operation in this band is not allowed. So a list of all the stations having part in this contest will be sent to the telecommunications ministry in order to avoid such restrictions in the excluded areas.
We would appreciate that club stations taking part in this contest would send us together with logs a letter signed by the association explaining that they agree with our demand. That letter will be attached to the stations list explained above.
* Please show clear in the summary sheet if you do not want to be included in this list.
ENTRANTS: Licensed amateur radio and SWL from all over the world.
Multioperator or club stations
Short Wave Listeners (SWL)
Only one transmitter can be used at the same time. Multioperator stations can use two transmitters (one for each mode: SSB and CW) whenever the antennas of both transmitters will be separated less than 50 meters.
All stations must be operated from the same location during all contest period.
CONTEST PERIOD: From Saturday 1000 UTC 9th June till Sunday 1600 UTC 10th June 2007. Single operators must have a minimun resting period of 6 continuous hours.
