Author : Geoff Atkinson - VK3TL

The 2013 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place annually on the second full weekend of July, beginning at 1200 UTC on Saturday and ending at 1200 UTC Sunday (13-14 July 2013).

Both single and multi operator stations may operate for the entire 24 hour period. All licensed amateurs worldwide are eligible to participate in this contest. The objective is to contact as many other amateurs, and especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world.

The 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands may be used. Multipliers are the total number of ITU Zones plus IARU member society HQ stations worked on each band (not mode).

Region 3 has 29 potential society stations. Last year 9 societies participated in the contest from Region 3. IARU officials represent a maximum of four multipliers per band (AC, R1, R2 and R3) Regional EC members who are not AC members must use the designator "R3".

The complete rules of the championship can be found at the following Link

This year there is an added incentive for an amateur from Region 3 as it will be the first time the Michael Owen VK3KI award is issued for the Region 3 amateur who receives the highest number of points during the championship.
