Go to http://www.hornucopia.com/contestcal/contestcal.html to see the full schedule and links to all the details of each contest. Some of the above contests are DX contests, so you can check off continents for the 9BWAC Challenge. My January goal is to obtain permission to install and operate an HF rig on the MODS 150 oil platform and squeeze in a little operating time this week before “…leaving on a jet plane…” Monday.
