Thank You!

Thanks to all who particpated in SAC CW and SAC SSB. We are now doing the logchecking with full steam. This year the log submission records for CW and SSB were broken. This year we received 1327 (+11%) CW logs and 1046 (+14%) SSB. 

More than 300.000 QSO-lines for CW and  240.000 for SSB will be checked rigorously by the SAC Contest Committee. Stay tuned for the results …

Time to submit your SAC SSB Log!

The SAC SSB 2013 is over and we are happy that the propagation this year was fantastic compared to 2012. Lot’s of stations made large amounts of QSO’s on the higher bands. 

One week after the contest, we have received more than 900 logs. But we still want more submissions, no matter how many QSO’s you made! So please send in your log, if you haven’t done it already.

CHECK YOUR CATEGORY
Before you submit your log, take extra care and check that you have entered the correct category according to the rules. Note that there are different sets of categories within or outside Scandinavia. If you are outside Scandinavia you may use the DX-cluster, but if you do, you must enter the Assisted category as a Single Operator.
