HAMARC Certificates & Awards

Although HAMARC participates in several contests each year, we are not an avid “contesting club” and we are not fanatical about contests.  Participation in some contests is just part of our yearly activities which include many non-contesting and non-operating activities. 

When we participate in contests at the station building we do so at our own relaxing and leisurely pace and we don't actually compete for high scores against other clubs.   However, we frequently do quite well with scoring and have received some certificates and awards which are shown below.

HAMARC W8AJT participated in the 2014 Oceania DX contest for the first time.  Operating at only 100 watts and with simple wire antennas unlike many other participants who were using amplifiers and beam antennas, we found it difficult to make a lot of contacts in the Oceania region.  Nevertheless, we were awarded a certificate for being #1 in North America and #1 in the United States in the multi-operator two-transmitter phone classification.

In October 2015 we participated in the Oceania DX SSB contest for the second year.  Reduced solar activity (lack of sunspots), disappointing HF conditions, and QRN made the 2015 contest "challenging" for all participants. HOWEVER, we again received another certificate for being #1 in the US and North America in our operating category!

In October 2016 we participated in the Oceania DX SSB contest for the third year.  Again with reduced solar activity, disappointing HF conditions, and QRN the 2016 contest was also "challenging" like 2015.   HOWEVER, we again received another certificate for being #1 in the US and North America in our operating category!
