From the 28th September to the 6th October the Enigma Reloaded event will be taking place this year.
The main goal of the enigma event is to promote as much amateur radio activity as possible all over the world, celebrating the history of the Enigma cipher machine and its crucial role in the outcome of World War II, and spreading the knowledge of those key people who contributed to its decryption.
The “Enigma Reloaded” event will take place in two steps:
- From 28th September to 5th October, Italian and foreign Amateur radio stations registered as “Activator stations” will ensure the activation of their radio stations in order to allow the participants to get their scores for the “Enigma Award” Contest; and
- On 6th October, the final event’s day, the Activator Stations will exchange predefined CW messages previously enciphered by a real or emulated Enigma machine.
All details and rules are available on the official website.
