Default Hawaii QSO Party Reminder

Working Hawaii can be a challenge, especially for east coast (US) hams
suffering from historically crummy HF propagation. Your chances of putting
HI in the log gets much better when there are a bunch of Hawaiian hams
calling you!

The Hawaii QSO Party contest will run from 07:00 UTC Aug 22, 2009 to 22:00
UTC Aug 23, 2009, for a total of 39 hours. Stations may work the entire
contest period.

The rules have been changed to emphasize that this is a QSO party, to make
as many QSL/able contacts as possible, emphasize the rare modes/bands and
remove the county hunter aspect and even the playing field by offering the
same point structure to stations, Hawaiian and non-Hawaiian. Contest period
has been changed to allow for more dark time to support the low bands
better. Exchange format is unchanged, but counties are not multipliers. Only
band and mode multipliers exist.

Good luck!
