With many new Hams coming into the hobby and several upgrading to General and Extra the coming year will hold a great opportunity to make contacts and enjoy QSOs on the HF bands.
Introduction. As the new solar cycle is now under way and conditions on the HF bands are expected to gradually improve throughout 2021, this unprecedented initiative is launched to give DXers a further motivation to get on the air and therefore support, improve and promote amateur activity using person-to-person modes of communication such as CW and SSB. This initiative, which we call “ultra-marathon” for a reason, is indeed unprecedented – its aim, reflected in its format, is to get people on the air and make as many unique contacts as possible over the duration of a full year, and not simply to work as many countries as possible.
Duration. 1 January – 31 December 2021.
