ARRL 10 Meter Contest

This coming weekend is ARRL's 10 meter contest. Ever since the November Sweepstakes I've been waiting for this one. There hasn't been any phone contests to speak of or at least that I've known about. Anyway, I've mentioned it to the XYL (AJ4IJ) and to Dad (KU4ME). I don't know if either one of them have any interest in working it but I sure do look forward to working it. I don't think I'll be any count but I will definitely have fun trying.
Anyway for those wandering, the contest runs from 0000 UTC Saturday; ends 2359 UTC Sunday (December 13 – 14, 2008). The only thing required for the exchange is ARRL/RAC Section (state or province) and signal report. For DX stations (including KH2, KP4, etc) transmit signal report and sequential serial number starting with 001. For Maritime Mobile stations send signal report and ITU Region (R1, R2 or R3).
To all the HAMs that will be working the contest good luck and catch ya on the band.

Hi Tim, participated in the 10m ARRL contest. Had some fun. But propagation is still bad. Nice to read your blog though.

Thanks Bas. I tried the 10meter contest but didn't have much luck. With that being the case I worked the PSK31/63 DeathMatch contest all that weekend. Thanks for reading my blog and hopefully we'll get a chance to work each other on the bands.
