First-place winners (individuals or teams) in each category will receive $500 each. Second and third-place winners in each category will receive $250 and $100, respectively. Winning designs will also be eligible for publication in QST.

Complete rules are on the ARRL website.
You don’t have to be an antenna expert to be a winner. Just send us your best design, and we’ll evaluate it according to the competition rules. Even if your design doesn’t earn a prize, it might still be eligible for publication in a future issue of QST.
We can accept only one entry per person or team, so choose your category wisely. Don’t wait too long, though. The deadline is June 1, 2017!
