SOUTH DAKOTA HAM RADIO OPERATORS CONTEST RECORDS

The purpose of this South Dakota contest records section is to promote excellence in operating skills and improvement of SD amateur’s stations communications effectiveness thru contest operations.  Through this contest record listing for SD it is hoped SD amateurs will be motivated to better these scores and in doing so better their operating skills and improve their amateur stations.

It is common knowledge in the amateur community that propagation from the Northern Great Plains is not the best.  This makes it very difficult to place in the national ranking of the TOP TEN boxes in the various contests. This makes it important that we recognize great contest efforts from South Dakota even when they do not make the TOP TEN. One way to do this is to provide a listing of record South Dakota scores for the contests, which this page does.

This South Dakota contest web page is split into two parts.  The first part lists South Dakota contest operations that have placed in the national TOP TEN boxes.  These include high power, low power and QRP operations made by single operator, multi-op and multi-multi.  The second part of this web page lists the highest scores recorded for various contests by South Dakota amateur radio operators.
