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.
Send entries to QST, Attn: Antenna Design Competition, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111. Or e-mail your entry to email@example.com. The subject line should include your call sign and the words “Antenna Design Competition” (without quotes).
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!
