Contest News – 17 August 2014

| August 15, 2014

On Tuesday, the 19th, the 1.3GHz UK Activity Contest takes place from 1900 to 2130UTC. Using all modes, the exchange is signal report, serial number and locator.

The IRTS 2m Counties Contest takes place on Sunday 24th between 1300 to 1500UTC, with awards for the leading non-EI station in each of the six sections of this 2-hour event. These awards often go to stations in GI, but if you have a good takeoff across the sea to Ireland it’s definitely worth a try. Also worth remembering is that if you’re a VHF ‘square basher’ and have missing squares in Ireland, this could be a good afternoon to work some of them. The 32 Irish counties are used as multipliers and you can find a list of them on EI8IC’s website. The exchange is signal report and serial number.
