The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

80m SSB Contest - 4th January 2023

Thank you for taking part in our first 80m contest of 2023. Conditions were variable during the one hour, which always makes the contest a challenge. Congratulations to Iain GM0V (GM0OQV) for getting top spot, and working a lot of stations that others missed. "Well Done" also to S53M operated by Miha S51FB for the highest score from outside UK and EI. Unfortunately, our UK bonus station G5GEI had a technical fault which meant that no QSOs were made. However our Irish bonus station EI5G made 40 QSOs and was a good signal here in IO80. The next 80m contest will be CW on 25th January. We hope you can join us then. Finally, put a note in your contest diary that the UK/EI DX CW contest takes place on 29/30 April 2023. 73 Tim G4FJK with EI5DI, GM3WOJ and GW0ETF Adjudicators for this contest
