The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

RESULTS - 1st February 2017 - SSB

Conditions could hardly have been worse, as you'll see by the Soapbox comments at the end of tonight's results. QSOs within the UK and Ireland were few and far between because there was little short-skip propagation, and yet there were no QSOs over 2500km.  Nevertheless, the number of logs received (57) was only three below last month (60).  Thanks again to everyone who persevered and sent in their logs. Congratulations to this month's SSB winners High Power Connected - HG1G      Unconnected - GM3X Low Power  Connected - M1G       Unconnected - S57KM QRP  Unconnected     - M9A Thanks for the checklogs from M0DCG & SO5MAX
