    The ARRL November Sweepstakes is here again. It is a crazy contest for amateur/ham radio ops.

    Take a look at this page for the "Rules of Engagement".


    Even if you dont want to be in the contest its a great time to pick up States or Countries you might need for awards.

    If you plan to engage those that are contesting, please read the rules to learn the proper exchange.

    I will post some more on that shortly.

    Happy Hunting
