CONTEST CALENDAR

With the ever-increasing number of new contests and sprints plus the constant change in links and data by contest organizers, it has become almost a full-time job trying to maintain a complete and accurate calendar. Since I don't have that much time, I'm only listing what I consider to be the major contests and sprints as well as some of my personal favorites that take place throughout the year. This is only a list with no links to the contests. If you want more info on the contests, I refer you to the excellent calendar maintained by Bruce WA7BNM here. From the looks of this wonderful calendar, Bruce must be able to dedicate nearly 24/7 to keeping it updated and accurate.
