Announcing the 2017 CQ WW DX Contest SSB

We will be operating VC3C2C at the Contest Site and will have a station on every band we can. This is the fun contest where we work everyone we can all over the world, including strange Islands and call signs, for that reason, this is a good time to use our Special Event Callsign, celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday as well as the 85th Anniversary of the Hamilton Amateur Radio Club. This is the contest where we usually have to check to see what Country or Area we are working because of unfamiliar Call Signs.

Contest time is October 28–29, 2017 Starts 0000 UTC Saturday Ends 2359 UTC Sunday October 29, start time is actually Friday October 27 8pm local time to October 29, 7:59pm local time.
The objective of the Contest is for amateurs around the world to contact as many other amateurs in as many CQ zones and countries as possible, on the six contest bands only: 1.8, 3.5, 7, 14, 21, and 28 MHz.  Rules are at:   CLICK HERE

The contest exchange is RS report plus CQ Zone number of the station location (e.g., 59 05). Ours is 59 04.
Come on out and run a station or relieve the other operators. Let me know if you can make it at Come and have some fun, see you there.
