ICWC – Top9 Activity


Mit Freunden und Mitgliedern teilen

The Top9 Activity


ICWC has already established a successful MST contest, so why do we need an “activity”? The answer is straightforward. We are all different, and our preferences are different, and some of us are not active in contesting. Therefore ICWC wants all operators to be included and have fun.

In Top9 any 5-minute contact is OK at any time. You may even have several 5-minute contacts in a row with the same station on the same band. To initiate one you may find CQ callers scanning the Reverse Beacon Network, you may invite a friend by phone, or you may just call CQ the old-fashioned way to name a few ways.

What counts is your presence. With your active participation, you are showing your love of CW and that you support the efforts of ICWC and its member clubs to keep CW alive.

If you invest some time in Top9, you will certainly make new friends and will have quality CW contacts. Especially during the important first phase of Top9, we are looking for volunteers to make general CQ calls.  This is still the most common way to establish a CW contact.

Questions or concerns, please contact Martin IK2RMZ:  top9.ik2rmz@dfgh.net
