SP DX Contest
SP DX Contest 2005

This year SP DX Contest will take place on April 2 - 3.
We hope to meet many old and new friends during the contest. It is a single country event but there is always a lot of activity of Polish stations so you can have a lot of work all 24 hours. It is also a perfect chance to meet the requirements of many Polish awards: please visit SP DX Club ( http://www.spdxc.org.pl/en/ ) WWW site or PZK - Polish Amateur Radio Union ( http://www.pzk.org.pl/ ) WWW site for more info about the awards.

Thanks to K1CC and SO5GB for translation into English
