IARU HF World Championship Contest
The 2009 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place the second full weekend of July, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday (11-12 July 2009). 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
Geoff Atkinson - VK3AFA - IARU-R3 Liaison Officer
objective of this contest is to contact as many other amateurs, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world as possible 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).
Last year, there were 10 societies participating in the contest from Region 3, and it is hoped to hear 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".
VK7WI will be on air as an HQ station operating in Zone 59. Jay S. Oka, JA1TRC, Secretary, IARU Region 3 is planning to participate in this contest and hopes to contact as many as possible during the contest.
