This year’s IOTA Contest will take place, as always, over the weekend of 30/31 July, 1200 to 1200 UTC. Full rules, unchanged since last year, can be found at: http://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/rules/2011/riota.shtml This page also contains a link to a “Help for Newcomers” page.
We hope to see many old and new participants in this year’s contest. The first three in most categories will receive a certificate, and there is a wide range of trophies available. See last year’s trophy winners at: http://iotacontest.com/contest/iota/2010/trophyWinners.html UK stations should also note that there is a new trophy this year, sponsored by CDXC (Chiltern DX Club) in memory of Henry Lewis G3GIQ, who was always a staunch supporter of IOTA. The trophy is for the leading UK 24-hour SSB, single-op, to match the trophies already available for 12- and 24-hour CW and 12-hour SSB. We do hope that many UK operators will enter this category, with a view to winning this prestigious new trophy.
All the major logging programs support the contest. If you don’t have anything suitable, try SDI by EI5DI, available for free download at http://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/sd.shtml
Finally, we would ask all entrants to respect the contest bandplans, which aim to create space for others wanting to use the bands over the contest weekend. Penalties will be applied for non-compliance.
