Greetings to 160M Contesters, DXers and lesser lights,
Dec 27, 1500Z to Dec 28, 1500Z defines the time course of this
year's running of The Stew Perry Top Band DX Challenge sponsored
by The Boring Amateur Radio Club. Operate 14 hours out of this time
period to maximize your exposure while staying within the rules.

uniqueness of this contest which may be a template for other

and feel strongly enough to send in $60 by check or $63 by PayPal to The
to recognize radio competitive feats by the assembled. You, yes you, can
