Dear Fellow Radio Amateurs,
We invite fans of digital modes of radio communication to JT9 activity days ‘Make haste slowly‘ which will take place from 00:00 UTC Saturday August 22 to 23:59 UTC Sunday August 23, 2020 on HF-bands from 160 to 10 meters. Repeated QSO can be made on different bands.
The obligatory condition of each QSO is to preserve in adif file of the Log: the received WWLocator. The occupied places will be distributed according to the sum of the distances to correspondents.
We announce the following prize contests:
• ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ – The winner of the contest will be awarded RDRC pennant for the largest number of QSOs with correspondents who are at a distance of more than 10.000 kilometers.
If the number of QSO is equal for two or more participants, when determining the winner the sum of the distances will be taken into account first, and then the number of bands on which these QSOs were made.
• ‘As the call, so the echo’ – One pennant of the RDRC will be drawn in a lottery between the participants in this competition with a result of over 100,000 kilometers.
• ‘Half a loaf is better than no bread’ – One pennant of the RDRC will be drawn in a lottery between the participants in this competition who will show the best results on each of the bands.
Certificates of JT9 activity days «Make haste slowly» in electronic form will be reawarded with all participants at whom the sum of distances up to correspondents will exceed 50.000 kilometers.
All certificates for contests and days of activity are loading on site http://awards.rdrclub.ru/certificate/
Reports in adif-format (.adi) should be sent to e-mail address 01-10(at)rdrclub.ru before 23:59 UTC on August 28, 2020. The report file should be named by your callsign (for example RK3DSW.adi). In your letter specify the last name, first name, WWLOC.
We are waiting for you on August 22 and 23 on the band frequencies for JT9!
