Worldwide Sideband Activity Contest, Weekly

WorldWide Sideband Activity ContestA 14-year-old General class amateur in Farmington, New Hampshire is among a group of six youths across the United States who sponsor the Worldwide Sideband Activity Contest (WWSAC), an hour-long contest that runs from 0100-0200 UTC each Tuesday (Monday evening in North America). 

“We have decent activity,” writes Brayden Ebare, KC1KUG. “Last week the winner did 130 QSOs.” 

160 through 6 Meters on SSB are used in the General sub-bands. The exchange includes signal report and age group (OM, YL, Youth YL, or Youth). 

When not organizing WWSAC, Brayden spends a lot of his time on the air operating from the K1TTT superstation. He has competed in major DX contests, such as ARRL DX SSB/CW, CQ WW DX SSB/CW, and CQ WPX SSB/CW.
