KW- and UKW-Contests


What's a Contest?

Goal of a Contest is to work as many other contest operators as possible in a fixed period of time. Contest rules define whether to call for a special country, prefix or region (CQ-Zone). Contests are held in one or several modes (e.g. CW, SSB) and in a given amateur band.

Winner in each category is the station which gets the most points.

Contests are either nation- or worldwide.
