Russian DX Contest
The rules concepts for The Russia DX Contest were developed in 1994. The organizers ran a small, twelve hour, proof of concept test in 1994 July. Rules were adjusted based on this experience and the date was fixed on the third weekend of March.
Last year, 737 logs were received from 56 countries containing over 368,964 QSOs. To put this in perspective, the IARU contest receives about 1400-1500 logs… and the most popular contest (1998 WW SSB) had 3570 logs submitted.
According to these logs, 3818 stations were reported to have made at least 2 QSOs in the contest.
Logs containing more than 1000 QSOs doubled last year, and participation has exploded, growing 50% every year to date. The attraction seems to be clever rules and a good date on the contest calendar.
