HamSphere 3.0 Contest Calendar
NameHamSphere friendly Introduction contest
HamSphere allows both licensed and unlicensed operators. Licensed operators may have participated in Ham Radio contests before whereas HS-users may be totally new to this concept.

This contest is a sprint of 12 hours. It introduces the concept of contesting to all members of HamSphere. It is meant to be fun and exciting. Even though prizes are not common for Ham Contest, we would like to entice our participants with some.
