Contests

This year the 28MHz SWL Contest, sponsored by the VERON SWL section, will be held in the weekend of 9 and 10 December 2017. That is the same weekend of the ARRL 10Meter Contest.

The rules of the contest can be found on: http://swl.veron.nl/swlcontest.htm.

Hopefully the propagation on 10M will be more favourable than in past Decembers!

Anyhow: happy contest.

The results of the 28MHz SWL Contest, held in the weekend of 10 and 11 December 2016, are available now. Due to the very poor propagation on the 10M band, there was very low activity from the SWL's.

In the CW category we found only one SWL active: Johan Heus, NL9723, and of course he is the winner of that category.

In the category Phone we found in total just 4 SWL's. The winner in the Phone category is Kees Schout, NL294. Also the places two and three are for Dutch SWL's. The fourth place was for the Spanish SWL Antonio Martinez Mendoza, EA3248URE.
