PMC contest rules



The idea of the contest is to promote contacts between stations - operators who are residents of the town or suburb of the Peace Messenger Cities and the rest of the world. If you are not a resident of some PMC, you can also operate as portable station from some PMC (for example, you can work /p from Berlin and give a multiplier BER).  


24 hours of operating time from 1200UTC Saturday to 1200 UTC Sunday, every first full weekend of January.


3.5, 7, 14, 21 and 28MHz, CW and SSB. IARU band plans should be observed. Suggested frequencies are: 3520-3560kHz and 3650-3750kHz, 7010-7030 and 7060-7160kHz, 14020-14060 and 14160-14260kHz, 21020-21060 and 21160-21260kHz, 28020-28060 and 28360-28460kHz.
