Russian Digital Radio Club announces a new event which is planned to be held annually at the end of summer. We invite fans of digital modes of radio communication to JT9 Activity Days «Make haste slowly» which will take place from 00:00 UTC Friday August 25 to 23:59 UTC Sunday August 27, 2017 on all HF-bands from 160 to 10 meters. Repeated QSO can be made on different bands.
The obligatory condition of each QSO is to preserve in adif file of the Log: the received locator; distance to the correspondent in kilometers which we recommend to write down in the “Comments” field. To display the distance in kilometers (not in miles), in the settings of the program “File-Setting-General” there should be no “tick” in the “Display distance in miles”. Only those QSO in which the above information is indicated are taken into account. The occupied places will be distributed according to the sum of the distances to correspondents. The result of each participant in the totals will be presented in the overall standings, including separately by bands.
We announce the following prize contests:
- «A picture is worth a thousand words» – The winner of the contest will be awarded RDRC pennant for the largest number of QSOs with correspondents who are at a distance of more than 10.000 kilometers. If the number of QSO is equal for two or more participants, when determining the winner the sum of the distances will be taken into account first, and then the number of bands on which these QSOs were made.
- «As the call, so the echo» – One pennant of the RDRC will be drawn in a lottery between the participants in this competition with a result of over 100,000 kilometers.
- «Half a loaf is better than no bread» – One pennant of the RDRC will be drawn in a lottery between the participants in this competition who will show the best results on each of the bands.
