Helvetia International Contest 2020

HB9MM (op. HB9DUR) Guest for Helvetia International

During the coming weekend 25. – 26. April 2020 the International Helvetia Contest will take place. I would like to remind all operators that it is a World wide contest, so any-to-any QSO are valid.

Helvetia Contest link

Starts: 13:00 UTC Saturday
Ends: 12:59 UTC Sunday

At the moment many countries forbid Multi-operators entries, so be careful to pay attention that at the moment the Single op category allow a maximum on 18hrs of operations

I will be guest op at HB9MM in west Switzerland in Canton VD

HB9MM in JN36HP

One of the way to increase activity, could be that all interested to join the UA1DZ Memorial Cup on Sunday, April 29, 2018, 13:00 UTC until 18:59 UTC (6 hours) right after the end of Helvetia and to extend participation in the UA1DZ Cup and guys interested in the UA1DZ contest

I suggest the two organizators to get in touch and discuss some sort of future partnership between them!

I will send my online results to http://scoredistributor.net/ to feed both online scoreboard

I am grateful to the Radio Amateurs Vaudois (RAV) for this opportunity

A must read during the COVID-19 restrictions is the interesting Insight of the contest manager HB9CZV Dominik on the 2019 Edition -> here <-

See you in the air!

I operate approximatively 21.5 hours in  3 days, collecting 2080 QSO, so achieving an average rate of 100/ hr and a max of 190/hr and max 4 QSO/min. I am quite happy with it considering not being in contest.FullSizeRender

Hourly QSO numbers

I am considering returning in the country for further activity also in new modes and bands as I want to support the HAM community in EX .

Thank you for those contacted me and the QSL policy is ruled on my qrz.com page. Any comment is appreciated.
