The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

80m CW Contest - 25th January 2023

Thank you to all those of you who took part in this 80m CW contest, and a special welcome to those stations who joined us for the first time. Congratulations to Nigel OE5TXF for the overall leading score, also to Allan SM5CSS leading the Low Power section, and to Graham G4FNL heading the QRP category with 81 QSOs. Here on the edge of Europe, the noise-floor was low and conditions seemed quite good. Greg W1KM sent in a welcome log to prove what 80m was capable of while still daylight at his QTH. Our Bonus Stations were busy again. EI5G (at EI7GY) had 66 QSOs and G5GEI (at G3WPH) had 86 QSOs. Quite a few QSOs were lost by some stations because of bad locators in the log. It is useful to have a Locator Map of Europe on your shack wall. This will help you remember that JO02 is in the East of England, but IO02 is a "Wet Square" in the Atlantic. Don't forget to tell your radio friends (and your family) about the UK/EI DX CW Contest on 29/30 April 2023. 73 Tim G4FJK helped by EI5DI, GM3WOJ, G4WQI and M0HDF

Condx not favourable for my mobile Diamond whip! -- 2E0OBO Very hard with my small coil loaded 80m dipole. Struggled with neighborhood local QRM. A nasty generator pump motor or whatever. -- DF5EN Good activity, good ears on the other site, thanks for alls qsos. 73 and bcnu in the next one Klaus DL8TG -- DL8TG Very good conditions, good signals, thank you for all the QSOs. Highlight was OX3XR! -- DM6EE Sorry for poor operating tonight--my CW is still weak but I'm working on it. Great to finally get the master, SM5CSS, in my CW log. SD worked great for me as usual--straightforward and reliable. Thanks Ei5DI. -- EI2KA Good condx and activity -- EI8CE Good fun -- EI8KN Good conditions for a change. -- G3KNU Contacts a bit thin on the ground Good condx -- G3RWF Very poor conditions at start. -- G3XTZ FAIR CONDX. -- G3ZBU Why does the QSB always take out the same part of a repeated locator? Lots of QSB tonight but good fun. -- G4BRK Keyer probs at start -- G4RGK Enjoyable contest for a small qrp homebrew uSDX transceiver 4W output. -- G5BBL SD used for logging SCP and CHF really helpful -- G6C Good low noise condx - lots of new stations. Found Ei5G with only 4 mins left. 73 Chris -- GM2V Great to be back in this contest. -- GM3A Only a couple of Irish tonight. Thanks all for fun contest. -- GM4JYB Slow start for me on qrp -- GM4M Forgot how to turn off the cluster and autofill in DXlog...;-) -- GW4J QRP from Cornwall very few G some EIGM but mainly EU stations. All in run mode. -- M3M Most good condx - thanks for the QSOs. -- M4N Good activity level but high local noise due to local QRM. Thanks very much for all QSOs and hope see you all again on the next one. Till then 73 I use EI5DIs SD for my contest logging -- M5G Variable conditions tonight - stations that were just above the noise early on were FB sigs later, and also vice versa. -- M7R I ALWAYS USE SD LOG -- OZ3TQ Started with QRP, but no succes. So I changed it to 50 W output. Worked much better. 73 - Tonnie - PA9CW -- PA9CW Good conditions and very little QRM and QRN this evening!
