Weekends are made for HF Contesting (or, how to work a lot of stations in a short time)

If you’ve worked HF for any length of time you know that HF contests on weekends are “target rich environments”. You don’t have to be a contester to work a lot of stations and pick up new countries, states and US counties. Just this coming weekend are:

  • Collegiate QSO Party
  • Iowa QSO Party
  • New Hampshire QSO Party
  • New Jersey QSO Party
  • Washington State Salmon Run
  • Wisconsin Parks on the Air
  • And More!

These events are full of stations wanting to work YOU!

A great way to see what events are coming down the pike is the WA7BNM Contest Calendar https://www.contestcalendar.com/index.html The calendar has an 8 day schedule, 12 month schedule, QSO party calendar and others.

Check it out, and get on the air! (and be sure to send pics of you at your station to blogmaster@lakelandarc.org)
