LYAC LY Activity Contest on VHF and other AC in Europe

LYAC (LY Activity Contest) is held every month for Lituanian radio amateurs on VHF bands. Complete rules.

Other similar country-contests take place in fact as one joint event accross the Europe, as they are all held at same times, on same days under identical or similar rules. This is especially welcome on VHF bands as the everyday activity in some European regions is very low except for rare DX openings. These Activity Contests allow VHF enthusiasts in every corner of Europe to make few QSOs, and provide unique year-long contest for those contest-minded.

If you happen to take part in one of these contests, you only need to send a copy of your LOG to participate in another. Note though that it is usually required to make one or more QSO with that region/country.

  • The Nordic Activity Contest (NAC) started back in the fifties (1954?) It started locally in Skåne on 144 MHz and has developed ever since. (The rules are not static). The NAC Open Class was started in 1989 to encourage activity outside the traditional Nordic countries, and organized by the EDR (Danish Ham Radio Organization) ever since. - Thanks Ivan OZ7IS for this information. To apply in NAC, non Scandinavian participants need QSOs with at least 2 Scandinavian WWLs. NAC rules
