Under Chris Kirby’s guidance, several of our members managed to achieve a total of 18 contest contacts during the 60 minute contest, using 100W and a G5RV. Our longest distance contact was with H1G1, a distance of approximately 1500km.

Overall, this put us in 42nd place in the contest, out of a total of 58 entrants, which is pretty respectable for a fairly casual first effort. Results are available on theĀ UKEICC contest results page.
