As the new solar cycle is now under way and conditions on the HF bands are expected to gradually improve throughout 2021, this unprecedented initiative is launched to give DXers a further motivation to get on the air and therefore support, improve and promote amateur activity using person-to-person modes of communication such as CW and SSB. This initiative, which we call “ultra-marathon” for a reason, is indeed unprecedented – its aim, reflected in its format, is to get people on the air and make as many unique contacts as possible over the duration of a full year, and not simply to work as many countries as possible.

You will find a 5 minute introductory video (above). Full rules for participation and the possibility of pre-registering here
