BCC QSO Parties 2020 – Rules

We will organize in 2020 again another two 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.

Please pay attention to the new start time in September because of the daylight saving time! We will have „BCC-Party-Hero“ Polo-shirts for the top 3 entrants per category over both parties.
