Hello to the contest group,

The 1997 South Pacific 160m Contest will be held on
Saturday July 19, from 0500 UTC to 2359 UTC.

Last year there was a reasonable number of VK and ZL stations
operating, but due to band conditions and station capability,
only one North American station was worked by the South Pacific.

It would be appreciated if North American and DX stations could
look for VK and ZL during this contest period.

Stations can enter Phone, or CW or both using separate log
summary sheets.  One station can be worked once on each mode.

Best times would appear to be between the South Pacific
sunset, and the North American local sunrise.
Sunset in ZL is 0525 UTC with sunset in VK commencing around two
hours later. 
Sunrise W1 around 0931 UTC, W4 1037 UTC, W7 1107 UTC, W6 1302 UTC.

Hope a few keen operators can make it!
