Announcing the 2018 CQ WW DX Contest SSB

We will be operating VE3DC this year 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. Last year we won a certificat using VC3C2C. 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 27-28, 2018 Starts 0000 UTC Saturday Ends 2359 UTC Sunday October  28, start time is actually Friday October 26, 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: https://www.cqww.com/rules.htm   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 ve3bk@hamiltonarc.ca. Come and have some fun, see you there.
