The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

Results - 7th March 2018 - SSB

Thanks for taking part in the second last SSB contest of the 2017-18 series. Here near Inverness I found conditions good - I made 60 QSOs in the first half hour, but then things fizzled a bit and the QSO rate dropped. The band was very busy, with several nets, including one on 3736 that I tuned across when they were ranting at some unfortunate contesters :-( IMPORTANT MESSAGE :  due to a clash with the CWops contests on the last Wednesday of this month and next month, we have decided to revert to the original timing i.e. 2000-2100z for the last three contests in this series. Sorry about any confusion. Please pass this info to your friends. As your adjudicator had the highest points score, the scoring of this event was cross-checked and verified by the other three adjudicators via our regular post-contest Skype conference call. Congratulations to Allan GM4Z (GM4ZUK) in second place Overall and the High Power section. Congratulations to Sandi S57KM in first place in the Low Power section, with Ed GM3C (GM0WED) in second place. Congratulations to Reg G3TDH as the winner (and only entrant this month) of the QRP section. UBN files have been sent out by e-mail. The Teams Competition remains closely fought - the draconian discipline imposed on the Pembrokeshire Contest Group team members is keeping them just ahead of the Dream Team! Next contest - 28th March - CW.  The final three contests will be adjudicated by Paul, Tim and Stewart.  More detailed Results tables will be added below in the next few days.  We will be completely restructuring these webpages before the next contest season. Looking forward to our UK/EI DX CW Contest on 31st March / 1st April  73    Chris GM3WOJ, Paul EI5DI, Tim G4FJK, Stewart GW0ETF - Adjudicators
