14,800 Visitors come to Friedrichshafen to attend Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition.
In late June, everyone in Europe will meet at Lake Constance – everyone interested in shortwave radio, wireless telegraphy and radio telephony. The Ham Radio, Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition, will open its doors from Friday, June 28 until Sunday, June 30, 2013. Presenting trends, information and lectures on amateur radio topics, it also serves as a meeting point for radio enthusiasts from around the globe. 180 exhibitors from 26 countries will be on hand, presenting their products and innovations. This year’s motto for the Ham Radio, “The Amateur Radio Adventure – DXpedition”, is proof that amateur radio is not just confined to the basement, but also inspires adventure and travel. It’s indicated by the abbreviation DX, which stands for distance, DXers travel to remote areas across the world to operate their radios there. At the 64th Lake Constance Meeting of the German Amateur Radio Club (DARC), which traditionally takes place during the Ham Radio, DXpedition members will report on their experiences and their travels, ranging from destinations in the Indian or Atlantic Oceans or even Africa.

The All Asian CW Contest will be taking place on June 15th-16th, run by the JARL, the Japanese Radio League.
The bands are 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. For non-Asian entrants there is no HI-LO power category distinction, but it is possible to compete as a Single Band or Multi Band operator. Only QSOs with Asian stations will count and the multiplier is the total number of different Asian Prefixes worked on each band.
Please bear in mind that, like in the phone portion, the exchange is formed by the RST report plus the operator’s age. YLs can give 00 if they want. This contest lasts 48 hours.
Logs should be submitted to aacw[at]jarl[dot]or[dot]jp by July 31st, 2013. For complete rules, see http://www.jarl.or.jp/English/4_Library/A-4-3_Contests/2013AA_rule.htm.
