    Between 1st May and 31st May 2018 our members from around the world will be active on the bands using CW with special call signs, many of them containing the number ‘80’.

    The challenge is being run as a leaderboard on Club Log, and your ranking in the leaderboard determines the award level you achieve. All stations are welcome to participate.
