NB: A pochi giorni dal Contest non sappiamo ancora quando riusciremo a fare la premiazione della scorsa edizione. Vi preannuncio che intanto invierò i diplomi di benemerenza ai relativi vincitori e piazzati (Almeno questo possiamo farlo), addirittura possiamo già annunciarvi che la premiazione si terrà a Montichiari il 4 Settembre sia per l'edizione 2020 che per la prossima (al momento non sappiamo l'orario esatto).
Per il prossimo possiamo solo augurarci che la sorte ci regali almeno le condizioni necessarie per farvi divertire, se poi riuscissimo anche a coinvolgere amici e membri dei distretti allora saremmo sicuramente ripagati per la voglia e l'impegno che ci porta ad appassionarci in questa banda, croce e delizia di molti Radioamatori.
Nel regolamento (vedere link sopra). Stavolta non si riferiscono ad altre limitazioni, ma bensì a 2 nuove Overlay aggiunte al regolamento per questa edizione.
