We are happy to see that most of the plaques already are sponsored by several generous sponsors. But there are still have some vacant sponsorhip available. Please take a look in the list and consider if you want to be a sponsor. If you have an own idea of a new type of plaque, please let us know.
Contact email@example.com if you want to take part in the SAC Sponsored Plaque Program.
SAC features a sponsored plaque program to increase interest and participation in the contest. The plaque winners and sponsors are published on the SAC website and in the annual “SAC Results and Stories” PDF booklet.
The SAC Rules for 2023 has now been updated.
Based on the unanimous decision by the Nordic Radio Amateur Union (NRAU) it is decided that the stations from Russia and Belarus are not eligible for participation in the 2023 Scandinavian Activity Contest (SAC).
We are introducing a new way of participating in the Explorer category where you are allowed to experiment with new ideas and technology that is not covered by the regular rules. We hope this will inspire innovations not seen before.
The OVERLAYS are now for all participants, regardless of whether you are in Scandinavia or not. We have also added CLASSIC as an overlay for those who want to participate without using assistance (Skimmer, DXCluster etc).
Read about the details on the Rules page!
Henning OZ2I has decided to leave the SAC CC and the current committee consists of two members OH2BH and SM5AJV. We are hoping that new representatives from OZ and LA will join us soon.
SAC Contest Committee
After cancelling year 2022 SAC we now come back in 2023 with two fresh contest weekends and YOU are invited to participate.
Right now we are preparing the new ideas that will come with the 2023 SAC tests and we look forward to announce the news on this page during the springtime.
Let us say loud and clearly; No one is more sad of this situation than us, the SAC CC members, who only want to make a good Contest experience.
SAC CC consists of four members from four different Nordic countries and the individual countries’ organizations have different ideas about how to handle the ongoing war in Ukraine in the context of amateur radio contesting often referred as radiosport.
Each of us had to follow the statements of our respective organizations and we had no other solution than to cancel 2022 Contests.
We have no further comments.
On behalf of the SAC CC
OZ2I Henning Andresen
The SAC Contest Committee has unanimously decided to cancel this year’s two sections of the Contest.
Our decision has been made due to the ongoing war in the region and in consideration of the IARU declaration about friendship between people.
We hope that the situation will change for the better, so that we can once again compete against each other as the SAC rules dictate.
From the IARU web page (https://www.iaru.org/2022/statement-from-iaru/)
“IARU is an apolitical organization focused on promoting and defending amateur radio and the amateur radio services. The amateur radio service is about self-instruction in communications and friendship between people.”
Decided on July 15, 2022 by:
LB8DC Morten Kvernmoen
OH2BH Martti Laine
SM5AJV Ingemar Fogelberg
OZ2I Henning Andresen
On April 16 2021 SAC-CC announced:
As a result of the technical developments as well as the more and more advanced operator skills, SAC CC wants to introduce innovations in the rules. There is also a reason for changes due to the many contests that are taking place and to retain a reasonably number of participants in SAC.
We then invited all participants to take part in a survey that could give us some hints in wich direction you wanted us to go. We got response from more than 250 participants and after review of all input we now we have four main points.
- Mixed Mode contest with SSB and CW in the same single weekend.
SO categories SSB/CW/Mixed. MO categories Mixed.
- All stations may contact All stations
- Adding 160 meter band
- Defining more Overlays
The question about OVERLAY was answered with many different suggestions and since it is technically a question of the way we present the results, we have postponed it until we have found out the categories and which bands we should use.
The next phase will begin after the SAC-CC members meeting later this year.
Keep an eye on this website for upcoming information.
Now the 2021 version of our Booklet is published and ready for you to read.
We hope you will find some interesting information this year and as something new, we have tried to list the results across all categories – read more on page 70 and forward.
The final results are now ready and we congratulate all the winners. In total we received 2319 logs when we sum 1411 CW logs and 908 SSB logs. It’s somewhat less than in 2020 but the third best number of logs ever. A big THANK YOU to all participants from all over the world.
The sponsored plaque winners are now announced.
