This exercise is usually run after the Summer examination period each year. It involves the transmission and reception of a serial number and signal report, to as many stations as possible during the 24hr period. The competition is divided into two phases, usually 1400-2359 on the Saturday and 0001-1400 on the Sunday.
There are occassionally morse and data sections within these times which run in a very similar manner to the voice competition. Most of the NRN HF frequencies are used and there are bonuses for communicating with the same station on multiple frequencies. Entrants are encouraged to compete from a field location however it is not compulsary.
