Amateur radio contest are a way of testing out your skills in not just radio operation!

Field day contests challenge operators to take their gear into the field and set up in sometimes difficult locations and establish a station quickly and make contacts the length of the country and further abroad.

Microwave contests in the VHF and up world challenge the technical boundaries of UHF and EHF communications not just for Amateurs but often exceeding the capabilities of commercial installations.
