SAC Rules

On April 16  2021 SAC-CC announced:
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.

We then invited all participants to take part in a survey that could give us some hints in wich direction you wanted us to go. We got response from more than 250 participants and after review of all input we now we have four main points.

  1. Mixed Mode contest with SSB and CW in the same single weekend.
    SO categories SSB/CW/Mixed. MO categories Mixed.
  2. All stations may contact All stations
  3. Adding 160 meter band
  4. Defining more Overlays
Here are the four questions and how the participants voted

The question about OVERLAY was answered with many different suggestions and since it is technically a question of the way we present the results, we have postponed it until we have found out the categories and which bands we should use.

The next phase will begin after the SAC-CC members meeting later this year.
Keep an eye on this website for upcoming information.

Welcome to our new member

As you may have noticed, Tomi OH6EI had left the Contest Committee earlier this year and the Finnish CC-member place have been vacant. However, Tomi has not completely left the work with SAC as he, this year again will organize the work with sponsored plaques.
We have just received the uplifting news that a new Finnish member has arrived and we are pleased to welcome Martti OH2BH to the working group. Martti are well known within the contest community and it looks to be an exciting spring 2022 when we again have to work further with new upgraded rules.

Welcome Martti from the rest of the SAC CC Team
