BCC QSO Parties 2019 – Rules

This year the BCC wants to activate more than 80 % of its member in the main contests with club competition.

Therefore we have our so called Frequent Contester Programm. The price will be a special T-Shirt for every active BCC-member. But we also want to have some fun. There we will organize this year again some BCC-QSO-Parties. We want to know your T-Shirt-size, so we hope that the T-Shirts for our active BCC member will fit well.

Here are the rules:
