ARRL International DX Phone Contest: March 2-3:

With the CW portion of the ARRL DX Contest http://www.arrl.org/news/ride-the-wave-in-the-2013-arrl-international-dx-cw-contest now a series of fading dits and dahs in the memories of participants, preparations for the Phone portion of the ARRL International DX Contest http://www.arrl.org/arrl-dx the weekend of March 2-3 are already underway. The high bands were in good form for the CW contest two weeks ago, with many stations reporting hundreds of QSOs on 15 and even 10 meters. Will these good conditions last into early March? Find out!

Just like the CW DX Contest, the Phone competition is relatively easy: US and Canadian stations only work DX, and DX stations only work US and Canadian stations. The contest exchange is a signal report and your state or province for US and Canadian stations, while DX stations send signal reports and their transmit power.

The 2013 ARRL International DX SSB Contest runs from 0000 UTC Saturday, March 2 through 2359 UTC Sunday, March 3. Logs must be e-mailed or postmarked no later than 2359 UTC Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Submit your Cabrillo-formatted electronic logs via e-mail dxphone@arrl.org; paper logs should be sent to ARRL DX Phone Contest, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111 USA.
