The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

80m CW Contest - 24th April 2024

Thank you for taking part in our last contest of the 2023/2024 season. Conditions seemed quite good across Europe, the best DX being a QSO between VK3CWB and G4PIQ. The final results are now online, with a very close finish for the top spot. Congratulations to Janusz SN5J for achieving 1st place, just ahead of Sandi S57KM and Ted SN1T. The EI/UK pack further back was led by Chris GM2V, followed by Mark EI6JK and John GM3A In the QRP section, there was another mini-contest taking place, with Mike G3P coming out on top. Thanks to Megan EI5LA who activated the EI5G Bonus station and to Tim G4FJK who activated the G5GEI Bonus station. We introduced a League Table for this season, to encourage some more activity and competition. Congratulations to Sandi S57KM for taking First Place, ahead of Allan SM5CSS. Four of the Top-5 stations this season were also in the Top-5 of our "Test Table" of the 2022-2023 season, but all with much improved total scores. Well done to all of you. Across the UK and Ireland, Mark EI6JK took top spot. He was closely followed by Brian GM4JYB and M5G (the ROARS club station operated by Peter M0URL). Both Brian and Peter entered every one of the 14 SSB and CW contests of the 2023/24 season, and were the only stations to do so. In the QRP section of the League Table, Richard G4ZFE takes 1st place, ahead of Mike G3P and Zoki S51Z. We hope that you have enjoyed taking part in this season of 80m contests, and that you will join us later this year in September when the next season begins. If you have any suggestions about how we can improve these contests, please do contact us. Please remember that the UK/EI DX CW Contest takes place this coming weekend, 27th/28th April. We hope that you will be able to take part and send in a log for this very popular contest. Thank you and 73 The UKEICC Team
