RoLo stands for ROtating LOcators, so called because the contest exchange depends on that received in the previous QSO, and the exchanges consists of entrants' locators. There are two of these short contests per year: SSB in April, and CW in October. These contest were previously based on UK postcodes (zip codes) which meant they were only accessible to UK stations. Now they are open to UK and non-UK stations too.

RoLo1 SSB: 3 April 2016 19:00 to 20:30 UTC

RoLo2 CW: 16 October 2016 19:00 to 20:30 UTC

These contests are on 80m.

Full details are available on the RSGB site at

We look forward to working you.
