Since Bruce only lists contests, does anyone have a good site for Special Events?
There is a Special Events Stations announcements page each month in QST.
You can search for Special Events Stations that have submitted announcements to ARRL on line at:
There is a Contests, DXpeditions and Special Events forum right here on QRZ.com:
There is a Special Events Stations forum on eHam.net:
So , new ham . Can we answer a QSO with out being in the contest ?
Yes, you can answer a contest call without being in a contest.
There are a couple of sources of contest information this is one.
Easiest way to find out what the latest contest is, is to log on here and look for the latest gripe threads....
Yes, but you are encouraged to submit a log even if it is for only a few (or one) QSO. You don’t have to, but it may help the ops you worked. I believe some contest rules will discard a QSO with a callsign that no one else has worked unless the call in question has the same QSO in their log.
You better don't. Some contest rules give penalty points for unmatched contacts.
So if the serious contester uploads a log with your contact in it and the organisers can't find your log confirming the qso then the other guy loses points.
This is the best contest calendar out there.
Not seen any to penalize for casual contacts. If both submit a log and only one confirms, that is a problem however.
