ARRL November Sweepstakes Dominates November Ham Radio Contests

The annual ARRL SSB November Sweepstakes will occur on Saturday and Sunday, November 16-17. The Sweepstakes offers an opportunity to achieve WAS in 24 hours or to earn a Clean Sweep mug.  It is perhaps the most popular HF radio contest in the United States.  The required exchange is rather long, including a consecutive serial number, a precedence (transmitter power, etc), your call sign, and your check (year of first licensing).  The contest begins at 4pm local time, and entries must be submitted effectively by December 2.

For all those interested in Earth-Moon-Earth communications the same Nov 16 weekend brings on the last of three weekends for the EME contest.  On the following weekend, Nov 23-24, one may earn the DXCC award in one day in the CQ World Wide CW Contest.

See and select November at the bottom of the page under Contest Corral for all detailed information.
