Sounds like a great contest Kostas.  Glad you have announced your plans well 
in advance so that Steve will be able to find time to put together a new WL 
contest module for this one!  Right Steve?  Or is there another WL module 
that could be used for this one?

> ham radio modes, SSB, CW, RTTY. It will be a 24 hour non-stop event 
> divided in three sections, each one devoted to a different mode. There are 
> some tentative rules of the contest that you can take a look. It will take 
> place every Saturday, the 1st full weekend of February, debuting on 
> 02-02-2013.
> After all, what makes this particular contest unique is the special gift 
> for the winner! (take a look to the prize page)
> In this point we have to mention all the Greek amateurs who are working to 
> make this event alive: SV1DPI, SV1NK, SV2AGW, SV2DCD, SV5BYR, SV7JAR, 
> There is still a lot of work to be done and more details to be announced. 
> Stay tuned!
