Links To Contesting Information

Whether you enjoy the thrill of a pileup, testing to see how well your station can perform, or how well YOU can perform in a competitive situation, contesting offers a lot of thrills in the world of ham radio. For every realm of interest--CW, SSB, VHF, SSTV, RTTY--there is a contest for it. Explore why we organized the Twin City Contesters in the first place; to compete with ourselves and each other in the quest for a good finish, and having fun doing it. Check out the links below to get more information on ham radio contesting:
