Oceania Dx Contest SSB and CW 2018


Counting down the final days!


A reminder that the 2018 OCDX contest is happening over the first two weekends in October. The PHONE section runs from 08:00z on 6th October to 08:00z on 7th October, and the CW section at the same times on the following weekend (13th and 14th October).  Please read the 2018 rules.


Thanks to our generous sponsors, numerous trophies and plaques are up for grabs again this year, including a new plaque from the Radio Amateur Society of Australia to be awarded to the top entrant from New Zealand in the CW Single-Operator ALL Band High Power category.


Listen out for the Quake Contesters (ZL3GA, ZL3PAH, ZL3AB and ZL4TT) who will be entering OCDX Phone and CW contests from Niue this year with the callsign E6Y. If you are planning something special for the 2018 OCDX contest, please let us know and we will post it on the web site.


For clues about what to expect during the contest and who your rivals might be, catch up with the latest newsresultssoapbox comments and records from previous OCDX events on our website.  Most importantly, take a moment to review the OCDX rules.  Have you decided which category to enter yet?


With the kind assistance of WA7BNM, the committee is introducing an online web form for the submission of logs in the 2018 contest. This replaces the email robot that we have used in previous years. Information about how to submit your log using this new web form will shortly be posted on our web site and in an updated version of the 2018 OCDX rules.  


Any questions? Have a look at our website http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com/index.html or send an email toinfo@oceaniadxcontest.com .


73 and see you in the pileups!
