The nationwide "Heavy Metal Rally" is Sunday, Dec. 27. This annual event brings out the Tall Ships of AM for a show cruise across the airwaves.
Originated by Bill, KDØHG, the operating event is sponsored by Electric Radio Magazine, which publishes top honors and bestows a trophy award.
Quoting from the rules:
The winner should be running a rig weighing 250 pounds or running at least 250 watts. This includes big homebrew, military, and vintage commercial ham gear, and Class-E solid-state rigs as long as they meet the qualifications.
Stations running contemporary rigs on AM, including SDR-transceivers, are a welcome part of the event. In my opinion, this is not so much a rapid-fire points contest, but rather, a published scheduled event where folks can hope to meet up with and catch up with those they may not have heard for months.
