Author : Bruce Deefholts - Office Manager

The 2022 NZART Sangster Shield Contest is to be held Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd May 2000 – 2300hrs NZST each evening. (0800 - 1100 UTC)
Rules for this year are unchanged and as per the NZART website:- Link
Contest is 80 metres CW only for NZ entrants with power output up to 5 watts pep. Overseas stations/ entrants may use power up to their legal limit.

Reminding that the Exchange (Cipher) is RST, Contact serial number beginning at 001 & Branch number. Power output is not to be given on air but will be published in results.
Overseas stations should receive the full exchange above from NZ contestants but are only required to transmit RST + contact serial number.
CW beginners have commented that their preferred exchange is – RST / Serial number / Branch number (where / = dah-di-di-dah-dit).
Remember that there are 6 HALF hour operating periods EACH evening. 12 periods in total
Operating just one night is fine as we would all prefer to have as many on the air as possible.
73’s & hope to work you in the contest – Glenn ZL2KZ
