Icom has announced information for the 2014 D-STAR QSO Party, an
annual contest that promotes the Amateur (Ham) radio hobby around the world through D-STAR (Digital Smart Technologies for Amateur Radio)

This year's global event will take place over three days from Friday, September 19 (00:00 UTC) to Sunday, September 21 (24:00 UTC). Official rules and party details for the D-STAR QSO Party 2014 will be available at a later date and posted on the Icom Inc. D-STAR QSO Party microsite.

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK Ltd said, ‘The D-STAR QSO Party is not a competition to contact as many callsigns as possible, the goal of the D-STAR QSO PARTY is to communicate with as many D-STAR repeaters as possible throughout the world.‘

‘All operators who submit an approved log will be eligible
for the prize draw. 10 lucky winners will be randomly selected to each win an ID-51A/E 50th Anniversary D-STAR Dualband handheld.
A great prize!’

D-STAR is an open standard digital communication protocol that delivers clear digital voice and can transmit data such as callsign, short messages and GPS information.
