Calling Frequency: 27.595 then QSY to any frequency for the QSO providing it is within your countries local laws and regulations. You can use 27.555 if your radio will not transmit on 27.595, I ask all where possible to use 27.595 to avoid making to much QRM on 555 for those who do not participate within the contest to give them a chance to make some DX.
The first top 3 finalist SD Members Single and Multi operators will receive a trophy each.
The first place single operator NON SD Member will receive a trophy.
The first placed Multi Operator NON SD Member will receive a trophy.
Good luck to all!
