Each year the SWL section of the VERON organizes the SLP Competition for SWL's on the HF amateur bands. SLP stands for "Short Listening Period". The competition consists of 8 separate contests spread over the year and are planned in the weekends of major international HAM contests, so that at least reasonable activity on the HF bands can be guaranteed.
