BCC QSO Parties 2021 – Rules

We will organize in 2021 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 and lengthening of the party! There are also some minor changes in the rules (no QSY anymore, no Power-Limitation, immediately log transmission) We will have „BCC-Party-Hero“ Polo-shirts for the top 3 entrants per category over both parties.

Here are the rules:
