Although it is difficult to work Russian stations (UA0 excepted) from my location in southwest USA, I find it very strange that the hours of the contest operation do NOT include any night time hours at my location.

The sun sets at 0010 UTC at my location this time of the year. Consequently there is absolutely no opportunity to effectively participate in this 'WORLDWIDE' CONTEST.

My question is; If this is a contest inviting worldwide participation, why is there not at the minimum a full 24 hours of competition period?

   Dear friends,

RUSSIAN 160 METER CONTEST will be held from 20.00 to 24.00 UTC, on the 19th December 2014.

The Rules of the Contest are at

Current Rules were approximated with RDXC Rules, and any RDXC software may be used in this contest.

In previous years, various ideas were discussed, both negative and positive, but finally positive ideas predominated, - even from those who are against Rules changes.
Operators from almost 50 Russian oblasts participated in the last Contest.

Please note: THERE IS NO 10-minutes rule for club stations.

Welcome to participate in RUSSIAN 160 METER CONTEST !

С уважением,
Vlad          /         R7LV               mailto:
