Sponsored by the Russian Digital Radio Clubb twice each year to encourage the development and practical usage of digital communication and development of software for various digital modes.

Participants:
Licensed radio amateurs and Short Wave Listeners are invited to participate, including amateur club radio stations with official callsigns issued by the territorial administrations of communication, and in the case of radio observers (SWL) - 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.

Types of modes:
The contacts made by the following 15 digital modes are accepted: CONTESTIA, DOMINO, HELL, JT65, JT9, MFSK, MT63, OLIVIA, PSK, ROS, RTTY, SIM-PSK, SSTV, THOR, THROB.
Bands and recommended frequencies (this is a large table available on their web site, address shown at bottom of this article.) Radio contacts set on nine bands are counted: 160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meters.

Some of the MANY digital modes that are recognized and may be encountered are as follows:

CONTESTIA DOMINO

JT9A MFSK16
MT63-500 OLIVIA8/250
PSK ROS4, ROS8, ROS16
RTTY45 SIM-PSK
SSTV THOR16
THROB4

General rules:  Duplicate 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 (sked). We recommend schedules to use narrow-band protocols. Other digital contests may take place during Days of Activity, therefore we ask participants not to occupy for ordinary QSO those frequencies where other contesters are active. The radio contacts conducted in digital contests during Digital Activity Days are also counted for 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.
01.01 and 01.05.2016 - HELL and SSTV
