HARC has a long heritage of contesting, with our club call sign VE3DC

Contesting, or Radio Sport, is a major component of HARC’s activity. The club holds one of the last two-letter call signs in Canada, VE3DC. Being a small club with limited resources, we cannot maintain a club station for contesting, so a sub-group of members, currently led by Rick – VE3BK, maintain a dedicated contest site to keep this tradition alive. Operational expenses are not covered by the club, but by contributions by those contesters who use the site. Please contact Rick for more info at ve3bk@hamiltonarc.ca.

The Contesting menu item above has some historical articles and photo archives. Following is a blog of recent contesting related posts.
