So, what sub-bands?  They would be wise not to use the normal FT8 frequencies.

What frequency sub-bands are to be used?  I didn't see anything in a quick look at the rules.

Hello GAPA'ians:

This is the first real FT8 only DX contest sponsored by the European FT8 Club, and an opportunity to pickup some new grids/prefixes !

Here is the link for the rules, hours, exchange, etc. : FT8 DX Contest

You don't have to 'enter the contest and submit a score' to play - you can simply monitor and pick out those stations/grids that you want to contact.

Additionally, propagation has been open the last two weekends on 15M (and some on 10M) to South America.  I managed to pick up two new grids in Brazil.
