Forthcoming contests operations are included in the tables linked-to below. Note however, this is archival data and is not, as a rule, updated.

For operations in the forthcoming smaller contests for which I don't create dedicated tables and for operations that are not contest oriented, check the Announced DX Operations ADXO table.

Contests and contesting add a further dimension to amateur radio operating, proving new challenges and interest to the hobby. Some radio hams even run their calendar by when the contests occur. Amateur radio contests come in many forms and take place on many frequencies. The contests may also have different aims.
