CONTESTS

While most of the major Spring contests are over until the May 29 CQ WW WPX-CW contest, there are still many opportunities for contest operation this weekend. For RTTY operators, you might consider participating in the VOLTA WW RTTY Contest. The CQ-M International Contest offers both CW and SSB modes in a worldwide contest. CW operators who like Sprints will have a great time with the SKCC Sprintathon. There is also a short 50 MHz Sprint Saturday evening that might appeal to 6-Meter ops.

Lastly, if you are doing the State QSO Party Challenge, you have the Arkansas QSO Party on Saturday.

This is just a summary of the contests that I think you might be interested in. Please take a look at WA7BNM's Contest Calendar.
