WINTERHEAT is a month-long amateur radio simplex event/contest that tests amateur radio operators ability to make as many simplex contacts during the month of January on the 2M, 6M and 70cm bands.


SCORING:
Scoring is simple. Confirmed contacts are awarded 10 points and unconfirmed contacts are awarded 1 point.
All contacts are logged at the time they are made by using the event logging system.
All points are tallied in real time using the same system.

More States More Fun!

RegionMap_225HighUnlike last year, radio operators in the adjacent states may also participate this year. This change was to facilitate those radio operators who reside along the state boundary.
Radio Operators in the adjacent states who wish to participate may also make contacts with hams within their states as well. The goal is to make January Radio Active.

WH2020 had 6,500 contacts. Let's see if we can increase that this year.
