I kindly ask you few moments of your attention.
We are approaching the date where you can show your expertise on a competition with the three modes at the same time - SSB - CW and RTTY.
Next December 29th starting at 12:00 GMT for 24 hours till December 30th 11:59 the Araucaria Dx Group is proud to announce the first edition of the HIRON HAM CONTEST
The participants will have the unique chance to operate the three main modes. SSB, CW,and RTTY in one single competition.
A maximum of 8 hours of each mode is allowed. You can contact stations all over the world, including your country.
Multipliers are the number of zones and entities on each mode independently of the band.
Please take a quick look on the rules   http://www.araucariadx.com/ih/IRON_HAM_CONTEST_ENGLISH.pdf
The idea is to offer a unique opportunity to combine all three major ham modes in one single contest similar as the very well known Hiron Man in the sports.
In addition to plaques and certificates and aiming an closer integration between the contest world community we will offer to the winner of SOAB category and one representative of the Multi-Two category a totally free acomodation in any Brazilian city (with a contest station) of the winner preference. The winners  will have at their disposal a contest station that can be used on a contest or simple DX operation. The prize include internal flights in Brazil and also food expenses.
For this first eddition the competitors doesn´t need to record the entire contest.
There are two contest logs SW that the competiors could use  TR4 and N1MM
