US Islands Contest

Great opportunity for the club to compete. Goal is for non-island stations to work as many North American Islands as possible in a relatively short period (only 15 hours). For Island stations, the goal is to work other islands and as many other stations as possible. Precise rules and dates (probably in August) to be determined. In 2015 and 2016, the club operated from Camano Island (K7IOC's QTH). HF Mobile stations to act as rovers are especially encouraged to participate in support of the club. Contact Lee Folgedalen K7IOC for more details. Also, see our US Islands page.
