What is November Sweepstakes?
The ARRL’s annual November Sweepstakes is the oldest domestic contest, beginning in 1930. Sweepstakes paused during World War II but came back stronger than ever. It’s a competition between North American stations – individuals, teams, and clubs. For many US and Canadian hams, it is their first contest operation and remains a regular event on their yearly schedule for a lifetime. The contest is somewhat unique in that each station may only be contacted once and the number of different recognized locations (“multipliers”) is limited to the ARRL and RAC sections. Working all of the sections is called a “Clean Sweep” and allows the station to claim one of the coveted Clean Sweep coffee mugs – there are other awards, as well.
Other good things to weave into this copy include: awards won, distinctions given, number of products sold, company philosophy (just keep it short), interesting company history bits, and anything that makes a reader think you'd be awesome to do business with.
NØQET Ron Ary and WØAF Don Brown participated in the 2017 November Sweepstakes. Kudos to them both for putting in the effort during when the solar cycles are at the bottom.
