Good Luck in the Contest
Want to get you name in the record books ? VK 160M CW QRP has never been entered. Who will be the first to claim the vacant record ?
Just checking the ZLs are in a similar position – Is this an opportunity to have a second Trans Tasman Contest ?
Working TransTasman QRP 160M ….
From Richard VK2BO -
This year we had a good showing in the VK Shires contest with 60 logs being submitted, this is a sizable increase on last year.
There is the absence of the “Rover” section this year and there is some confusion in the fact that to be a roving station you have to activate a minimum of 2 shires to be eligible.
The objectives of this contest are for amateurs around the world to contact as many VK shires as possible in the contest period.
VK amateurs are to work the world including VK, whilst the rest of the world can only work VK.
you can directly up load the log to r5ga for inclusion in the rates tables…
We would hope that lots of VKs upload if they think they should be listed in the records list..all good fun..
This is updated every hour and lists the bands to best work the zones in any one hour – With the high sunspots there will be lots of countries to be worked this weekend. Read more…
VK Shires Contest 2013
The VK Shires Contest will have the results posted on line on the 1st November 2013.
Richard VK2BO was moving house and needed to forward them on for checking – As they arrived here last week it will take a while to get them all completed.
Waiting for the Remembrance Day Contest Results?
The next issue of AR magazine will contain the results.
Once the mag is out, (about 2 weeks away) the full 20 page results will be on the WIA RD website for download, as well as the PDF Certificates for individual state winners.
Good luck and 73 from
Since we started the project we always wanted the possibility to cover all possible categories permitted by the contest rules.
This means that our hardware must be flexible for SOSB to MO Unlimited and must be always the most competitive one.
After some 1st world in MS and M2, last year, in November, we tested the station in a Multi Unlimited enviroment, partecipating to CQWW DX CW.
This experience had brought us another 1st world with a good 61M point score and 21k qso’s, but it was not enough to achive our goal. Read more…
