Thanks to Aidan EI8CE for operating the bonus station EI5G and to Paul G4PVM for operating the bonus station G5GEI. Apologies for the late publication of the results. This happened because of some issues arising when our site was moved to a new server. UBN files have been emailed to all entrants. The next contest in this series will be on CW on Wednesday 24th January 2024. The next SSB contest will be on Wednesday 7th February 2024. 73 from the Adjudicator - Paul G4PVM (with Tim G4FJK and Chris GM3WOJ)

Thank you all, 73, de Gary -- 2E0IGD Very difficult for me. I have a bad 80m antenna that has a bad SWR in the upper SSB range. And I'm a bad SSB Op. That's why I don't call CQ. -- DF5EN Best QRB is 1263km for LY9A at KO26JE -- DK5DQ Thanks for nice contacts, 73 and HNY -- DL8TG Happy new year, thank you for the QSOs! -- DM6EE happy new year to all -- EI2IAB Best QRB is 2067km for SQ8MK at KO11CJ.
