A 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.
