Our goal is suitably modest - we simply want to collect all the world's good information about amateur radio contesting and make it accessible from a single portal.

If you're a new contester, or just curious about what this ham radio contesting thing is, we suggest you start with these articles:

Then either come back here or follow any of the links there that interest you. Some of them will take you outside this Contesting Compendium but you can always use the back arrow to come back here. Enjoy!

If you're already into contesting, the next logical question is, "Will you help us make it happen?" Please check out our brief Mission Statement.

Look over the Table of Contents for details about the scope of the project, How to Read/Browse to see what is already here, and the How To Contribute page when you decide you might be interested.
