The IARU Contest will be conducted this weekend on HF (non-WARC) bands from 10pm EST Saturday 9 July to 10pm EST Sunday 10 July 2016.
This is a good opportunity to test out the bands (particularly the lower ones) and get more more DX into your log. The contest details can be found at http://www.arrl.org/iaru-hf-
