The Annual IARU HF World Championship will be held on the weekend of July 11 and 12, 2015. All licensed amateurs worldwide may participate.
Date and Contest Period: The second full weekend of July, beginning 1200 UTC Saturday and ending 1200 UTC Sunday (July 11-12, 2015). Both Single and Multi operator stations may operate the entire 24-hour period.
The objective is to contact as many other amateurs, especially IARU member society HQ stations, around the world using the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter bands in as many ITU zones as possible. There will be no contest activity on 12, 17, 30 or 60 meters.
The RAC HQ station will be VE5RAC.
IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH, will be using a special call VE690IARU to commemorate the 90th anniversary of IARU. Members of the IARU Administrative Council and the three IARU regional Executive committees send “AC,” “R1,””R2,” and “R3” as appropriate, for example, IARU Region 2 Director VE3YV would send "R2".
Entries for the contest must be postmarked or emailed no later than 30 days after the end of the contest (1200 UTC Tuesday, August 11, 2015).
