GR2HQ Challenge

| June 28, 2024

We are looking forward to the IARU HF Championship contest on 13-14 July 2024, and there is a great opportunity for you to get involved in a different way this year.

During the contest, Headquarters Stations represent their countries and the RSGB’s station GR2HQ will be run by a network of about a dozen stations around the UK and islands.

A new challenge

This year, the RSGB Contest Committee has introduced a new challenge to encourage individual stations to work the GR2HQ station on each band-mode slot.

You will be able to submit your log, including QSOs with GR2HQ, to the RSGB contest robot for the GR2HQ Challenge.

If you include your club or group name when you submit your log, each QSO with GR2HQ will count towards an aggregate score for your club or team.

There will be two results tables, one for individuals taking part and one for clubs, so your QSOs can contribute to both!

Individuals or clubs – get involved!

Why not encourage your club members to take part in this special challenge whether they are regular contesters or not.

By contacting the GR2HQ station you’ll also help the RSGB’s position in the contest—last year we came third and we’d love to improve that result.

For more information see the June 2024 RadCom feature (PDF) and for the full rules go to the GR2HQ Challenge page on the Contest Committee website.
