    It may be a dumb question, but I am pretty new to this. I'm hearing a contest happening on 40m right now, but I haven't heard anyone say what it is, and I can't find any sort of calendar online or anything. What contest is it, and in the future, how can I tell what the contest is? (where to send in a log, etc.)

    I was wondering the same thing. Ordinarily, there's a contest calendar available at https://www.arrl.org, but the site seems to be down at present -- or at least unreachable to me. If you can get to it, go to the "On the air" item (I think", then, look in the left pane for contest calendar and chase down today's date to see if there are any ARRL sponsored contests ongoing currently.

    I can second (or third or whatever). The WA7BNM Contest Calendar.

    Bruce's site is the definitive contest info site.

    Here's an 8-day calendar of radio contest. I use this. It's simple to read, all the info is readily available and, best of all, it's accurately updated every week.
