UK results for the 2020 IARU ATV Contest

Post by G3GJA » Thu Jul 23, 2020 12:55 pm

The UK entrants to the 2020 IARU contest logged 204 QSOs in bands from 435MHz to 76GHz. 70cm is still the most popular band with 44 QSOs, followed by 23cm on 38 QSOs and surprisingly at third is 9cm with 26 QSOs which has beaten 13cm in fourth place with 25 QSOs. With large numbers of stations tooled up for the QO-100 uplink I was expecting more from 13cm. The best DX was on 23cm between Terry G1LPS and M0MLJ at 163km.

Overall wInner of the UK section is Noel G8GTZ/P with 19826 points, who managed to get points on all bands from 435MHz to 24GHz inclusive plus 76GHz, very impressive!

Here are the full UK results (CORRECTED 11/08/20); well done to Dave G4FRE and Dave G8GKQ who have come second and third respectively:

1 G8GTZ/P 19826
2 G4FRE/P 13898
