Default [KE9V] ARRL November Sweepstakes

ARRL November Sweepstakes

Posted: 03 Nov 2016 09:30 PM PDT

Weve arrived at the first full weekend in November and that means the bands
will soon be filled with the Music of Morse when thousands of radio
operators take part in the CW ARRL Sweepstakes.

(The phone version of the event takes place during the third full weekend
of this month).

Sweepstakes is the oldest domestic contest having first taken place in
1930. After a pause during World War II, the event came back stronger than
ever after the War ended. It’s a competition between North American
stations – individuals, teams, and clubs.

For many US and Canadian hams, Sweepstakes was their first contest
operation and has remained a regular favorite. The contest is unique in
that each station may only be contacted once and the number of different
recognized locations (“multipliers”) is limited to the ARRL and RAC

Working all of the sections is called a “Clean Sweep” and allows the
station to claim one of the coveted Clean Sweep coffee mugs – there are
other awards, as well.

Complete details are here if you need them. Just remember logs are due
FIFTEEN days after the contest.

Good luck and see you in the pile-ups!
