Triathlon DX Contest announcement 
It all started in August of 2011. That was about when it occurred to Mike, 
SV5BYR that a big Greek Contest was missing from international Ham Radio 
Contest Calendar.  By the end of September this idea became mature and so the  
"Triathlon" was born! A triathlon is a multi- sport event involving the 
completion of three continuous and sequential endurance events. And as you have 
already guessed, it is a Greek word. We had to change a bit the name to 
Triathlon Dx Contest to match our activity. Actually, trying here to simulate 
the original Triathlon athletic event, we involved three major ham radio modes, 
SSB, CW, RTTY. It will be a 24 hour non-stop event divided in three sections, 
each one devoted to a different mode. There are some tentative rules of the 
contest that you can take a look. It will take place every Saturday, the 1st 
full weekend of February, debuting on 02-02-2013.


After all, what makes this particular contest unique is the special gift for 
the winner! (take a look to the prize page)


In this point we have to mention all the Greek amateurs who are working to make 
this event alive: SV1DPI, SV1NK, SV2AGW, SV2DCD, SV5BYR, SV7JAR, SV8CS, SV8RX, 

There is still a lot of work to be done and more details to be announced. Stay
