Hello Contesters


RSGB DX Contest

Please put the RSGB DX Contest in your diary – Sunday 8 October 2017.

This year the contest is a single day event but has been expanded to 18 hours, 
running from 05:00 - 23:00 UTC and now includes SSB and CW on the 3.5, 7, 14, 
21 and 28 MHz bands. The contest exchange is simply RS(T) plus serial number - 
starting at 1 and incrementing by 1, irrespective of band. All QSOs will score 
but points are higher for DX QSOs and higher band contacts.

Multipliers are the countries of the DXCC list on each band and mode for United 
Kingdom, Channel Island and Isle of Man stations and for other stations the

prefix, for example, G3, GJ0, MM0 etc., on each band and each mode will be a 

The DX Contest is a development of a long established series of HF contests on 
21 and 28 MHz which is now enhanced to accommodate a period of reduced 
propagation on the higher bands. This contest is always an excellent 
opportunity for United Kingdom, Channel Island and Isle of Man stations to have 
DX QSOs and for other stations to work United Kingdom , Channel Island and Isle 
of Man stations on multiple bands and modes.

The contest is held near to the autumnal equinox which can deliver excellent 
world-wide propagation.

Scores in the DX Contest contribute towards the RSGB HF Championship.
