reception
Reception
  • Texts are transmitted with increasing speed until the last competitor stops
  • Start at 10 WPM, increment 2 WPM
  • Reception is allowed either by hand or on a computer
  • You can try as many texts as you want but can submit only 3 radiograms – you choose which
  • Submission is automated via Alexandria software. Results are known instantly.
transmission

Practicing

RufzXP (by DL4MM)

  • 50 single callsigns are transmitted. Goal is to accurately record as many as possible.
  • If a callsign is recorded correctly, speed increases by 5%. Otherwise, it decreases by 5%.
  • Two attempts are allowed. The better result is taken as the official.

Morze Runner (by VE3NEA)

  • 10-minute simulation of a contest. Goal is to make as many QSOs as possible and earn maximum number of points. Multipliers and special callsigns are taken into account.
  • You select the transmission speed. The simulated stations will call you with approximately the same speed.
  • All in the presence of QRMs. You need to use RIT as stations are often off the frequency you are tuned to. Signal strength varies, too, from approx 539 to 599+. Fortunately, no LIDs .
