About The Event

About The Event

First annual international Contest meeting for HF & VHF contesters.
Idea was born by 9A1P in the year of 2019 due the current lack of quality events of this kind in Europe.
It was well postponed due COVID-19, but finally - we made it !
Among others OUR aim is to encourage contesters in experience exchange, further improvments, networking, and off course - to have fun.
