The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

Results - 6th March 2019 - SSB

We hope you enjoyed the contest this evening. Activity was again good although conditions here in IO73 weren't as good as for the CW contest last week and most EU signals were weak and sometimes difficult copy. Good to work a good number of new and unfamiliar calls along with all the faithful regulars; the contest is definitely growing in popularity. Congratulations to Allan GM4ZUK (GM4Z) for winning the High Power section and to his namesake Allan SM5CSS for heading the Low Power section. There must be something about the name as another Alan M7R came out on top with QRP though fittingly for the reduced power he has just the one L in his spelling. Special mention too for Andy G4PIQ for breaking the 100 Raw QSO barrier, from memory only the second time this has been achieved since Steve Cole GW4BLE (SK) in the early days of UKEICC. (Tim M0BEW also came close...;-) One leading participant worked a small number of stations who didn't give out a locator and entered a 0 (zero) in the exchange field. The rules state to enter one or more blanks or dashes in this case - a number of any sort results in a bust penalty. These QSOs will score zero so some may be tempted to delete them. This isn't recommended and all QSOs should be included - all QSOs can help with adjudication and perhaps for instance you might receive a QSL request for one of these several weeks or months later. (An alternative would be to manually mark these QSOs with X-QSO in the Cabrillo file) Please don't forget that the UKEICC DX CW Contest is the next contest in the calendar and takes place over 24 hours on March 23/24th. **SEE YOU THEN!** 73 - Stewart GW0ETF / GW4J - Adjudicator

GOOD CONTEST THANKS -- 2E0EVM Started off slow but soon picked up. Really good to get the Sweden station in the last 2 minutes. Well worth persevering! Tnx for all the QSO's -- 2E0WHQ Agn a nice contest on a noisy band this evening. Mny TNX! -- DG9BEO Difficult conditions tonight. M6GCH gave his WAB square as locator but said he is located in Exeter which I think is IO80. -- EI2KA Condx a bit mixed -- EI8CE Conditions were pretty good overall, happy with the 70 contacts made... -- EI8KF Good fun. -- EI8KN Very bad conditions here, a lot of stations that I cannot contacted because too much noise, sorry. 73 Didier -- F1FPL Holland and France were stronger than UK stations but Scotland not so strong this time. Good to make contact with EI but not many heard from here. -- G0ATR Conditions were better than in February -- G1EIX Late on -- G2BKZ good fun.- one end Mast came donw last night- now dipole attached to garden shed - 80M coil now 2ft off the shed roof Hi. but still getting out. -- G3L Very busy had a job to find a clear spot what a difference from other months! enjoyable evening and also enjoyed using SD -- G3LRS Good conditions. Nice to see many new stations participating! -- G3SWC Only managed the last 30mins, but surprisingly good with 5 Watts! -- G3TDH Very busy band - Hi! -- G3YCH Good conditions Used SD V21.01 -- G4BYE Bit of a rush but 24 QSO's in 25 minutes not bad going. -- G4IDF Thanks for the Q's tonight - 73 Phil -- G4NVR Hum - that didn't go to plan. The run radio stopped responding to the PTT line so the DVK didn't work after about 20 mins so I couldn't really use SO2R. Trying to fix that - for almost the first time ever - caused Win-Test to crash - and so badly that Task Manager wouldn't kill it, so I had to do a full computer re-boot. This lost me both Rx and Tx audio, so re-plugged headphones, found a fist mic and logged on paper for a few mins. Even after the reboot the PTT was still lost, so turned on amp on 2nd radio and swapped active radios after that was warmed up.... 2 x K3. Inv-V Dipole @ 18m. K9AY -- G4PIQ Only found out about this contest when turning the radio on at 20:30. Took a while to find the rules and download the UKEI80_VHF.udc file. So here goes my first attempt at this contest. Hoping I got it all correct -- G4SDM great contest -- G5UM N1MM+ performed well as usual -- G8X Very crowded and noisy band this evening, but good activity. Tnx for the QSOs - 73 Chris -- GM2V Pretty decent tonight, lots of continental qso ongoing -- GM4M Most EU signals weak tonight -- GW4J For one qso I asked a few times for square but got a wab instead. Log what you rx right? Rescore it suit. tu. -- M0BEW Heavy QRM -- M0DCG Windy but no rain at least. -- M1CJE Nice contest. Poor conditions unfortunately. -- PC4Y I like this contest format. Short and fast. Had some trouble first 25 minutes to find a good running frequency lots of splatter and QRM. But in the end everything went well again. No big distances worked unfortunately. Best distance was 1184km with F8ABB. A follow up story can be read on my blog. https://pe4bas.blogspot.com -- PE4BAS You were very patient 2E0WHQ we made it 4 seconds before the end of the contest! The noise level was high here this evening. Thanks for all contacts de Allan! -- SM5CSS
