BATC SummerFun Contest 8/9 June 2013

Post by G8GKQ » Sun May 12, 2013 11:44 am

Please don't forget that the BATC SummerFun Contest is on 8/9 June 2013 from 1200 UTC to 1200 UTC. Also, please take a look towards the Netherlands, as Veron is running a National ATV Contest from 1800 on the Saturday until 1200 on the Sunday.

Please post below if you're going to be on-air.

I have just re-written and simplified the rules for this contest. The new rules are here: http://www.batc.org.uk/contests/BATC_Su ... _Rules.pdf

From the Netherlands, also activity is expected. The Dutch ATV contest is from Saterday 18:00 UTC and ends on Sunday 12:00 UTC.

At Sunday, I will go /P on 6 cm and 24 GHz from the centre of the Netherlands, likely no contact possible with UK... However, this comment could stimulate people :D
My location: JO22QA39UX , 80 meter above NAP (http://no.nonsense.ee/qthmap/?qth=JO22QA39UX).

Good luck to you all!

If someone reminds me I will try to be present on 437 MHz DATV only.
I don't think I have much hope on any other band!

I wonder if DXSpot.tv counts as a talk back channel? I couldn't find a
definition of a talk back channel in the rules.
