Dear fellow contesters,

we are happy to invite you to the 55th edition of Worked All Germany 
Contest (WAG) on 17./18. October (1500-1459 UTC).

With more than 2000 active German stations on the bands from 80-10m 
activity should only be limited by your local condx. Go for 2, 12 or all 
24 hours - you will always find radio fun. We recommend to also log in 
to an online-scoreboard like
to have some more competetive fun even if you cannot afford to go the 
whole distance.

We welcome especially all of you participating for the first time in 
WAG, perhaps as a WRTC aspirant for which WAG is a qualifying contest 
2015 and 2016. A webinar about WRTC and WAG is scheduled for Sunday, 4th 
October, 19 UTC:
(tnx K4ZW and WWROF)

On our website you should find all necessary informations about rules, 
results and records. We also explain our legal robbery (=logcheck), give 
hints about the DOKs (=exchange) and German callsigns, advertise awards 
and a mostly unknown multiplier, summarize WAG in 77 seconds and show 
some impressive German landscapes of rock and aluminium

Important note: The WAG rules define contestfree segments to allow 
coexistence with the simultaneous worldwide "Jamboree on the Air" (JOTA) 
of scouts. See what your logger can do to keep you on the right lane to 
not lose points or earn penalties:

Confirmations for log upload and also the website will have links to an 
online survey conducted in English, Russian and German which will take 
less than 10 minutes to go through.

For all remaining questions please contact wag-info(at)dxhf.darc.de

In the hours prior to the contest (1200 to 1430 UTC) DARC will stage its 
Training Contest on 40/80m for Rookies of all ages in moderate and 
friendly speed

Please spread this invitation to fellow hams.
And now: Good luck and enjoy your activity in WAG 2015!

Cu & 73, Chris DL8MBS
