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

SAC SSB Deadline is soon

Thanks to all who participated in SAC SSB 2017!

Some seasoned SAC’ers said that this was the worst propagation ever in SAC’s long history. So we are impressed that so many stations still kept going despite extremely low QSO rates.

The log submission deadline is on Friday 20th of October 23.59 UTC.

Please submit your Cabrillo logs to the Robot !
All types of logs, small or big are important for the log checking. If you have any trouble submitting the log, please email us: support@sactest.net

 

 

SAC CW is over!

Thanks to everyone for participating in last weekend’s CW leg of SAC. Band conditions were reasonable, with the diminishing presence of 10m being balanced by nice DX openings on many of the other bands. Activity also seemed good on both sides of the Scandinavian borders.

As many of you noticed, the SAC website server crashed during the contest and was then offline for a few days, as if by grand and well-timed design by Mr. Murphy himself! Some 175 logs were submitted by e-mail to a temporary address, but we now encourage you to use only the customary robot at https://www.sactest.net/robot/.

We apologize for the inconvenience and uncertainty during the past few days, as our informational reflector e-mails and Facebook messages did not reach all those affected.

The log deadline for SAC CW has consequently been extended to Sunday 2nd of October, 23:59 UTC.

Now is also a good time to start training your voice and dusting off your best microphones. SAC SSB takes place on 8th-9th October, with plenty of Arctic action available!
