Ireland On The Air

Get our News Headlines for your Website:

Great interest is being expressed worldwide in the Irish Radio Transmitters Society's 75th Anniversary Contest - CQIR, which will take place on the last weekend in September.

The contest is a celebration of Ireland and the Irish, throughout the world, and with 40 million people in the United States alone claiming Irish forefathers, we expect that CQIR will be one of the largest 'one-off' contests ever aired on the Amateur Radio bands.

It is a 24-hour single operator contest with the emphasis on participation rather than winning and to this end every participant gains an entry ticket for a spectacular draw for every 75 QSO’s made during the Contest.

The ticket drawn out of the EI/GI drum will win an all expenses paid long weekend in New York City for two people. ARRL have confirmed that this will include a visit to their national headquarters hosted by ARRL.
