PURPOSE: This is a bi-annual activity supported by the Russian Digital Radio Club to offer a way to attract and publicize the use of digital modes for all interested amateurs and to contribute to the development of digital software for various digital modes. Licensed radio amateurs and Short Wave Listeners are invited to participate, including club radio stations with official call signs issued by the territorial administrations of communication, and in the case of radio observers - issued by the authorities of the official national Amateur Radio Union.

Date and Time:
Digital Activity Days "01-10" are held annually in January and May in the following periods:
- from 00:00 UTC on January, 1st till 23:59 UTC on January, 10th;
- from 00:00 UTC on May, 1st till 23:59 UTC on May, 10th.

Bands and recommended frequencies:
Radio contacts set on nine bands are accepted: 160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meters.

General rules:
Dupe radio contacts (SWL) can be conducted by different digital modes as on one band as well as on other bands. Spots in the Web cluster are welcomed. Contacts may be held by appointment (schedules). We recommend to use narrow-band protocols. Other digital contests may take place in Days of Activity, therefore we ask not to occupy for ordinary QSO those frequencies where other contests are in progress. The radio contacts conducted in digital contests during Digital Activity Days are also counted to the participants.

For the contacts in the seldom-used digital modes the following schedule is suggested for the 10 days of January and May activity. This calendar is advisory in nature and does not require obligatory execution.
