The 2019 NZART Sangster Shield Contest is to be held Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May 2000hrs – 2300hrs NZST each evening.
Sangster Shield Amateur Radio Contest Main Rules
80 metres CW only for entrants with power output up to 5 watts pep.
Note that the Transistor Trophy entry criteria allows first time Sangster entrants, rather than just newly licensed operators. Previous participants are fine to enter in this section if you have not submitted a previous contest entry.
Reminding that the exchange (Cipher) is RST, Contact serial number beginning at 001 & Branch number. Power output is not to be given on air but will be published in results.
CW beginners have commented that their preferred exchange is – RST / Serial number / Branch number (where / = dah-di-di-dah-dit).
Remember that there are 6 HALF hour operating periods each evening. i.e. 20:00–20:30; 20:30– 21:00 etc.
Operating just one night is OK as we would all prefer to have as many on the air as possible.
