2M FM Simplex Sprint Contest April 22nd 2017

 


 

Welcome to the 2M FM Simplex Sprint Contest Info Page!

The 2M FM Simplex Sprint Contest is back this spring as part of SLSRC's 70th Anniversary celebration!  Mark your calendars for April 22nd 7 to 10pm CDT!

The objective is to make as many contacts in different zip codes as possible with only 2M FM simplex using 100W or less.  To locate boundaries of zip codes, the following webpage can be of use : http://maps.huge.info/zip.htm.  There are also many smart phone apps out to tell you which zip code your located in.

This is a great contest to help conquer mic fright, test out a new antenna, learn how to program your radio and make new friends.  The contest is open to all hams to participate and join in on the fun.  You don't have to be an SLSRC member to compete in this, so spread the word!
