2006 YU DX Contest

Dear Fellow Contesters,
it's another YU DX Contest season!
year's results show an nice international competition taking place,
for example, by 7 out of top 10 LOWER HP stations being out of Europe.
A suprising number of QRP stations appeared, with the most popular being, of course, LP.
It's a great pleasure
to announce ALLBAND Plaque winners, who achieved the best
combined LOWER and UPPER scores. The global competition in all the categories certainly
made it quite a success to reach even the middle ranks. Therefore, we accepted the advice
to award all the substantial scores, both as a recognition of the effort, and a way to say thanks.
The new rules
worked well. The 4-hour rest period between 8-hour parts made it a more
and the simple choice of operating on lower or upper bands (or both) has resulted in many more QSOs.
This year's YU DX
Contest is an excellent opportunity to collect points for the jubilee "Nikola
Wishing you the best
of fun in the forthcoming YU DX Contest,
