The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

Results - 4th October 2017 - SSB

Thanks for entering the second SSB contest of the 2017-18 series. Here near Inverness I found conditions good for about the first 30 mins, then the noise level increased and signal strengths decreased. There was a lot of QRN to contend with, as well as nets and ragchewers. Most stations commented (see Soapbox comments below) that conditions were poor this evening. The extra 50kHz of space definitely made things easier for everyone. The Results are shown below. As your faithful adjudicator had the highest score (thanks for the QSOs!), these results have been cross-checked by Paul EI5DI. So, congratulations to me and congratulations to Allan GM4Z (GM4ZUK) in a close second place and to Allan SM5CSS in first place in the Low Power section, also Tim EI2KA in second place. Congratulations also to Tim G4FJK on winning the High Power Connected section.  Congratulations to Graham G4FNL on winning the QRP section, with Bill GM4M (GM4UBJ) in second place. Separate tables for UK/EI and DX entrants will be online here in due course. Paul EI5DI will be the Adjudicator for the next two 80m contests - please look out for VK9CZ www.vk9cz2017.com The next contest in the series is on CW on 25th October 2017                         73  Chris GM3WOJ - Adjudicator
