D-STAR QSO Global Party, Starts This Weekend! - 07/11/2011
The biggest D-STAR QSO Party in the world begins this Friday offering all those who take part the chance to win one of fifteen Icom ID-31 D-STAR UHF handheld transceivers!
Taking place from 0:00 on the 11th of November and ending at 24:00 on the 13th of November (UTC), this event differs from previous D-STAR contests that have taken place over the last few years.
Instead of competing for numbers of contacted call signs, the goal this year is to encourage D-STAR operators to communicate through as many D-STAR repeaters and with other D-STAR operators across the globe. The more countries a user contacts during the time period, the more entries in the prize pool they will have. Icom Inc. has a total of fifteen of the forthcoming ID-31E D-STAR UHF handheld transceivers
available as prizes for this event.
