146 and 437MHz contest Aug 8th and 9th

Post by g8gtz » Sat Aug 01, 2020 5:48 pm

The 146 and 437MHz contest is next weekend.

I will be on from home IO91KF at times on Saturday but don't expect too many contacts!

On Sunday I will be out portable, probably from Walbury Hill IO91GI near Newbury with good take off in all directions.

The 2 easy bands should make it a fairly enjoyable occasion and I look forward to hearing your plans for the weekend :-)

Just for clarification, the Contest will run from 1200 UTC (1 pm UK Local) on Saturday 8 August until 1800 UTC (7 pm UK local) on Sunday 9 August. The rules will be exactly the same as for the IARU International Contest, except the only bands will be 146 MHz and 437 MHz. Multiplier for both bands is 2 points per km for a two way contact, and half that for a one-way contact.

The basic rules are here: https://www.iaru-r1.org/wp-content/uplo ... -rules.pdf, but please note that entries should be sent to "contests@batc.tv".

The logsheet for entries is here: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/images/d/d5/AT ... 190608.xls

Hope to see many of you on the air this weekend.

Dave, G8GKQ
