SAC CW is this weekend

The Scandinavian Activity Contest on CW is this weekend 19-20 September 12-12 UTC.

Each part of this “Polar Battle” gathers 1000+ contesters from all around the world. As the Nordic hams enter their radio huts en masse, SAC offers non-Scandinavians a unique opportunity to work the propagationally challenged Arctic nations and practice your skills.

Things to check out

Don’t forget to read the rules https://www.sactest.net/blog/rules/. Changes compared to 2019 are marked in red.

We have a tradition of making Results booklets from each SAC. Go to
https://www.sactest.net/blog/sac-booklets/ and read what happened the last years with lot of nice stories and pictures.

Please take a look on our Sponsored plaques program (geographical, special skills, etc.) https://www.sactest.net/blog/rules/sac-sponsored-plaque-program/ Maybe you will earn one this year!

Ham radio and contesting is very much about propagation. Learn about propagation to Scandinavia: https://www.sactest.net/blog/propagation/

Rules for SAC 2020

We have updated the SAC rules for 2020. Biggest news is that we now allow for assistance in all operator categories. We have also clarified the rules about plaques and awards. See the rules for details!

We are still having a pandemic and we urge every participant to pay extra care and follow advice and restrictions regarding Covid-19. Extra care must be taken for participants in the Multi Operator categories and we encourage the use of remote operation. For Scandinavian Multi-Multi operations we allow for “scattered stations”, similar to the HQ-station concept in the IARU HF Championship. If you decide to participate with “scattered stations”, please inform us via email to support@sactest.net.

UPDATE 2020-09-16

Discussions around rule change have continued. After some consideration and by receiving an excellent suggestion, we have decided to flip assisted / non-assisted column around: Instead of marking non-ass. “N” (novice, like someone joked;-), we will mark assisteds A. For this in results will be separate column, and data for this comes from log submission robot. Participant will be asked whether one used cluster etc. or not.

UPDATE 2020-08-21
After publishing the rules for SAC 2020 we have got some reactions on allowing for assistance in all operator categories. The reason behind the change is that we want to reduce the number of operator categories and plaques. The reduction will also make the log handling and checking easier. 
In order to recognize operators that prefer not using any assistance we have decided that you are able to state if you operated without any assistance when submitting the log. Operators who participate  without assistance will be marked with (N) after the call in the ranking lists.
