The Enigma Event 2016 will take place in two steps:

  • From 17 th to 30 th September 2016, Italian and foreign Amateur radio stations registered as "Activator stations” will ensure the activation of their radio stations in order to allow to the participants getting their scores for the "Enigma Award".
  • On October 1 st, the final event’s day, the Activator Stations will exchange predefined CW messages previously encyphred by a real or emulated Enigma machine.

All details and rules are available on the official website: www.enigma-reloaded.it.
