2018 ZL Summer Sprint

I am pleased to announce that commencing on Tuesday 16 January 2018 at 8pm ZLs most popular (ok only) HF summer sprint series is back for another six weeks of Tuesday night operating mayhem. Lasting an hour in total, the first half hour is CW and the second SSB.

After an internal debate rivaling the recent coalition negotiations, we are going to go with 80m first this time around. Therefore the first three weeks are on 80m with the last three on 40m. The exchange remains the same i.e. signal report and outside temperature.

This a great opportunity for new licensees to rack up their 50 contacts on 80m before being let loose on the rest of the bands and for everyone else to show them how it is done or, if easier, the habits they need to avoid. Speaking of which this is also an excellent opportunity to practice not saying "my number to you is..." before Field Day at the end of February.
