    Thanks for the list. As I have said before, I am not much of a contester but I am thinking about picking up a new rig. If I dont spend all of my money at the next hamfest I am thinking about picking up a new IC-703+ and will need a chance to test it out. I see that there are a few qrp contests listed on that schedule and that will give me the prefect opportunity.

    No problem. But I don't think you need a separate QRP rig for a QRP contest? I was planning on entering one as QRP but just turning down the power on my ProIII (and not cheating).

    I know that but I have always wanted a QRP rig.

    No, that's quite alright. I dont want to have qrp all of the time.

    Greg, that is nice but all of that is in the contest calendar.

    I would like something that we don't already link to, such as contesting tips, contesting blogs, maybe links to big gun (and little pistol) station websites etc.

    Re: Contest calendar and contest links

    Another decent resource is www.sk3bg.se/contest
    They often list more obscure contests, mainly European slugfests.

    On each entry, there is a link to one or more webpages for additional information
    for the specified contest.

    In addition, there is a running calendar for the previous year where you can go back
    to any month (within the last year) and find out what contests ran and when.
    This can be useful if you worked a contest, maybe submitted a log, but do not
    have the web address to check on the results.

    Contesting.com only seems to list contests for the current week.

    Yes, there IS a yearly calendar, but the info is fixed and cannot be accessed for further information.

    bill.....Back to the TARA Skirmish, the Michigan QSO Party and ther Ontario QSO Party....

    Imagine working 3 contests at once....Talk about a glutton for punishment !!!!
