The RSGB Contest Committee have announced a series of contests using the new digital mode FT4

There will be a series of three short duration events on 80m (dial frequency 3575 kHz USB) to allow entrants to experience this new mode.

As this series is experimental, there are likely to be changes as we develop experience with this mode, so please check the rules prior to each event
