SAC Survey May 2021

NOTE: Deadline for responses is May 15, 2021

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.

Therefore, we want to involve as many of our participants as possible in the process of drawing up new rules. We start by asking you about the overall lines to hear what the mood is around these changes. We look forward to receiving a lot of responses and also comments with your proposals.

When filling in the form, please take an individual position on each question. In that way we get the best overview of your wishes. Please use the note field if you have some ideas for improvement of SAC.

Attention: You may send your opinion more times but only the last input from you will be used.

Later, there may be further questions and proposals about new rules that work towards the wishes that are submitted here.

Survey #1 is closed for now.

Now we will analyze all the answers from you and come up with new proposal.
We will let you know!

SAC 2014 Results Booklet and SAC Survey

The SAC 2014 Results Booklet is now available in PDF format (5 Mb) for your reading pleasure, here. It contains the full contest results, along with contest stories written by participants from different parts of the world. Thanks to all who contributed to the booklet, and to Flemming, OZ8XW, for taking care of the layout!

We’d also like to invite you to take a survey on SAC.
We are eager to develop the contest in the best possible manner, and obtaining your input is crucial to this process. The previous SAC survey from 2012 led to direct changes as inspired by your input, and we feel that now is an opportune time to measure “the pulse” again.

SAC 2012 Survey Results

The SAC 2012 Survey Result is now available.

After SAC 2012, a web-based worldwide survey in English was undertaken to gauge the feelings and thoughts of radio amateurs concerning SAC, its current state, and envisioned future development. An invitation to respond to the survey was sent by e-mail to hundreds of former SAC participants and to the CQ-Contest reflector. A total of 219 responses were received, constituting a reliable base for forming a good understanding of how SAC is currently regarded.

The contest committee extends a warm thanks to all who participated in the survey. As a whole, it appears that most respondents appreciate SAC and the efforts that have been undertaken to develop the contest. Criticism and constructive suggestions were also received, and they serve as a valuable aid in the further development of SAC rules, awards, promotion, etc.
