It’s soon time for SAC SSB

There are only a few days left until it’s time to grab the microphone and turn on your radio for SAC SSB October 12-13.

The CW part was a great success with more than 1700 participants. Almost 1300 logs with a total of 300.000 log lines was uploaded to the SAC Log Robot! A new record! Thanks to all participants!

60 years and still going strong

Our beloved SAC is 60 years old, and for this anniversary we offer special diplomas:

  • Bronze – to those whose first SAC was 1980-1989
  • Silver – to those whose first SAC was 1970-1979
  • Gold – to those whose first SAC was 1960-1969
  • Platina –  to those who were in the first SAC 1959

To get this you only need to report your first SAC-year when uploading your log.

Rules

Please read the rules carefully https://www.sactest.net/blog/rules/ .

Frequency limits:
​SSB: 3600-3650, 3700-3800, 7060-7100, 7130-7200, 14125-14300, 21151-21450, 28320-29000 kHz.
Remember, QSO’s outside the frequency limits will be scored zero points.

The “zero rule”:
If the station worked does not send a serial number, log the contact with number 0. QSO’s with zero in the received serial number field will not give QSO points nor multiplier points.

Sponsored plaques

Thanks to a multitude of generous sponsors we have a large program with sponsored plaques. Go and take a look and start planning!

Update 2019-03-27

We just found out that one call was missing from the Scandinaivan SSB results. For some unknown reason was SM0O entry missing in the final score. His entry has now been added and subsequent rankings has been adjusted. The 2018 years booklet has also been updated.
