2016 IARU HF World Championship Contest

As received from the secretary of IARU Region 3 (Download the PDF IARU-HF-Championship 2016)

The 2016 IARU HF World Championship Contest takes place the second full weekend of July, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday (9-10 July 2016). Both Single and Multi operator stations may operate the entire 24-hour period.

All licensed amateurs worldwide are eligible to participate in this contest. The objective of this contest is to contact as many other amateurs as possible,especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands. Multipliers are the total number of ITU zones plus IARU member society HQ stations worked on each band (not mode). Thus, your Society’s HQ stations participation is very important for the multipliers. Last year, we had 9 societies participated in the contest from Region 3, and I hope to hear/work more HQ stations from our region this year.

IARU officials represent a maximum of four multipliers per band (AC, R1, R2 and R3). Our two regional AC members have the option of using “AC” or our regional designator “R3”. Regional EC members who are not AC members must use our designator “R3”.

You can find the complete rules at;

I am planning to participate in this contest with“R3”designator and hope to see you all during the contest.

Enjoy and good luck!

73 de Ken Yamamoto JA1CJP
Secretary, IARU Region 3
