Amateur radio contests are a way of testing out your skills.

Field Day contests challenge operators to take their gear into the field and set up in sometimes difficult locations, 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.

This page provides a contest calendar, rules and results.

Check out the NZART Contest calendar for dates, and the links to the right provide information and rules for the various contests run by NZART and it's branches.
