15 February to 27 March 2016


Members of the North Country DX Association (NCDXA) will be active in February and March 2016 from several different locations in Alaska, Yukon and Northwest Territories using the call signs of KL7RST, VY1RST and VE8RST to further promote Amateur Radio up north.  Make contacts with these stations using all modes 6-160 meters and WARC bands are permissible. SWLs OK.  The object is to work or log (SWL) as many NCDXA "RST" stations as you can from their different locations. Work/log each "RST" station only once per their QTH/band and mode. The sponsor intends to have stations on from Whitehorse, Yellowknife, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and many other cities. QSL manager is K7ICE.

Optional full color certificates are also available (email for details) for working/hearing any of the "RST" stations.

SPECIAL EVENT DATE: February 15 (0000Z) through March 27 (2359Z)

NCDXA "RST" stations send signal report and QTH (ie- 5x7 Anchorage, 5x9 Whitehorse etc.). Receiving stations send signal report and state, province or country.

Beautiful full color certificates are available for working/logging as follows:'

any NCDXA "RST" station,
any KL7RST, VY1RST or VE8RST, but must work one of each
for those more competitive (keep in mind the scoring is for certificate levels and this is not a contest), a highest score category.

Scoring examples:
K7QRM works KL7RST in Anchorage on 10m SSB, 10m CW, 15m SSB and 40m CW for his Anchorage total of 4 points.

K7QRM works KL7RST at Matanuska Glacier on 10m SSB and 12m SSB for his Matanuska Glacier total of 2 points.

K7QRM also works VY1RST in Whitehorse on 10 SSB, 15m digital, 40m CW and 30m CW for 4 points.

K7QRM also works VE8RST in Yellowknife on 10m SSB and 20m SSB for a total of 2 points. K7QRM also works VE8RST in Hay River on 10m SSB for 1 point total.

K7QRM’s grand total points are the city QSO sum of 13 points.

Handwritten or PC generated certificate applications are acceptable. First, 2nd, 3rd etc. places will be awarded. Certificate deadline is May 15, 2016.

As a bonus, pending snow depth and weather, we may also have KL7RST and VY1RST on together from the border of Alaska and the Yukon on the Alaska Highway. A special QSL and certificate will be available for the border op. Thanks in advance for your DX spots!
