Chinese New Year Sprint

Bring in the new year...

Fri. Jan. 9 - Sat. Jan. 10, 2024

Get ready for an amateur radio competition in celebration of the Chinese New Year!

Armed with a Chinese-made radio, participants strive to establish as many contacts as possible within the allotted time frame. This event highlights the accessibility and value of these Chinese radios for budding hobbyists, fostering camaraderie and connectivity across the airwaves. Each participant operates exclusively with a Chinese-made radio or radio kit, while the contacts they make may be on radios from any manufacturer. 

The contest runs from 00:00 UTC on January 10, 2024, until 00:00 UTC on January 11, 2024 (7pm Fri Jan 9 - 7pm Sat Jan 10 EST), with all logged contacts occurring within a 2-hour time window chosen by the operator.
