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.

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

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 <-
