I would like to comment on some of the new rules of HELVETIAContest:
“2.1 Date and TimeThe last full weekend in April, Saturday 13:00h UTC to Sunday
· SOAB-CW + SSB +Digital-QRP
· SOAB-CW + SSB +Digital-HP
· MOAB-CW + SSB +Digital-HP
Participants incategory QRP are using no more than 5 Watt at the transmitter
The meaning of„Digital“ is RTTY, PSK31, PSK63, etc. Per Digital-Mode one QSO
per station andband is permitted.”
So, it became a multi-mode, WW-type contest.Unfortunately the digital modes are
defined ambiguously and there is noseparate digital category. I presume that
the digital modes fans will navigatebetween RTTY, PSK31, PSK63, PSK125, just
wasting timeand interfering with non-contesters hams.
Let’s seehow busy the RTTY-ers will be this weekend.
