We invite you to participate in YUDX Contest 2013 that will take place on April 20th and 21st, the YUDX Contest being organised on the third full weekend of April each year.

We will communicate during two periods of 8 hours each with 4 hours break, only CW on all HF bands. Propositions are a little bit different comparing to previous years: instead of exchanging IARU zone, we will exchange the serial number of QSO. The number of awards has doubled. Multipliers are only YU-YT prefixes now. For more information please see:
