Technicians: 10-10 Contest this weekend
Here is a chance for any licensed ham, including technicians with phone privileges on 10 meters to make some contacts. https://www.ten-ten.org/index.php/activity/2013-07-22-20-26-48/qso-party-rules
No logging software? The 10-10 Winter Contest is slow enough for hand logging. Don't be put off with the word "contest". It just means there will be more stations on the air to call.
Here is a link to the Contest Calendar. There is always a lot going on. Following the contests is a great way to make contacts because the airwaves get busy.
