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.

CHESTERFIELD: If you worked TX3A on RTTY on 14 Nov between 0400 through 0700 or so, it was a pirate. I have confirmed via the pilot station that they were not on the air. They sure fooled me, because the beam heading and frequency were correct he acted exactly like TX3A, even telling some they were dupes. I bet he worked a hundred or more, mostly JA with some scattered NA and Europe. At least we know ahead of time so we can work the real one. Go get tim
