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.
The AKAFUNK with its station DKØSU regularly takes part in contests.
SW-Contests ( ARRL-Award 1996 for DKØSU) are operated from our ham shack in the 3rd. floor of ETI II (Clubraum), UHF/VHF-Contests - including microwave-contests - ( Pics) are operated from the Unibauamt building (Pfaffenwaldring 32). During contests our phone 0711 / 685 - 8052 and the phone at our Contest Room at Unibauamt 0711 / 685 - 39 63 are occupied.
Forthcoming contest operations can be found in our Calendar.
If you want to take part in a contest at DKØSU, please mail three weeks before a scheduled contest to our Contest Manager Stefan, DK1MM.
