QRP ARCI Contests

Welcome to the QRP ARCI contest pages.

We sponsor several contests each year with the emphasis on having fun !

Geared completely to the QRPer, these contests are an excellent way to test out your new gear, antennas, or your homebrew creations. Not only can you compete in the various contests but you can also work on the many QRP awards offered both by QRP ARCI as well as other organizations and you can also add to your DX QRP totals or complete your QRP DXCC, WAS, WAC etc.

There are categories to suit just about everyone’s contesting needs including SSB and CW. There is also the A1 antenna category for those stations using single element antennas such as Verticals, Dipoles, Inverted V’s, Loops, long wires, etc. and we also have the A2 antenna category for those using multi element beams or arrays. This way everyone can compete with similarly equipped stations using similar type antennas.
