2018 IARU HF World Championship Contest

Date : 07 / 05 / 2018
Author : Peter Clee - VK8ZZ

The 2018 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place the second full weekend of July, that is the weekend of 14 and 15 July 2018, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday 14th July and ending 1200 UTC Sunday 15th July. Both Single and Multi-operator stations may operate the entire 24-hour period.

All licensed amateurs worldwide are eligible to participate in this contest. The objective of this contest is to contact as many other amateurs as possible, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. Multipliers are the total number of ITU zones plus IARU member society HQ stations worked on each band (not mode). Thus, your Society's HQ stations participation is very important for the multipliers. Last year, we had 11 societies participated in the contest from Region 3, and I hope to hear/work more HQ stations from our region this year.

IARU officials represent a maximum of four multipliers per band (AC, R1, R2 and R3). Our two regional AC members have the option of using "AC" or our regional designator "R3". Regional EC members who are not AC members must use our designator "R3".

You can find the complete rules at;

Ken Yamamoto JA1CJP the Secretary of IARU R3 is planning to participate in this contest with the“R3”designator and hopes to work many VK stations during the contest.
