    UK EI DX CW Contest 2018

    27th March 2018

    Hello worldwide HF contesters

    This coming weekend March 31st/April 1st 2018 is the annual 24 hour UK/EI DX CW contest. Everyone can work everyone, with two types of Multipler (a) UK & EI District Codes and (b) DXCC countries.

    This contest runs from 1200-1200z with UK and EI stations sending RST (optional) + Serial number + two-letter district code. Stations outside of the UK and EI send RST (optional) + Serial number.

    CW on 80m to 10m – there are 12 hour and 24 hour sections and other interesting features such as a 'Real Time Scoreboard', a remote operating category, 'single element antenna' overlay and a simplified multi-op category designed with club operation in mind.

    The log submission deadline is 24 hours after the end of the contest – the adjudication software then allows the provisional Results to be online 20 minutes after this deadline.

    The overall winner will be awarded the magnificent Kenwood Cup (sponsored by Kenwood UK) – there are plaques and certificates for other section winners.

    Full Rules (in several languages) can be found here :

    Upload your Cabrillo logfile here :

    Note - the log submission robot will reject any logs which have format errors, so please check the e-mail response from the robot to ensure that your log has been accepted. You will be asked to correct a rejected logfile and resubmit it.

    Hoping for good DX propagation at the weekend !
