The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

Results - DX SSB Contest - 30th Sept/1st Oct 2017

Thanks for enduring the poor propagation conditions and taking part in the third UK/EI DX SSB Contest. We should give Awards for perseverance under these sort of conditions. What a difference a year makes - in 2015 we received 240 entries, in 2016 we received 296 entries, in 2017 we received 137 entries! Note - some contest logging software e.g. WinTest 4.25.1 still expect the Norwich district code to be NR not the new NK. Don't worry you will not lose points if you logged NR instead of NK in this contest. Congratulations to the Multi-operator team of the Avondhu Radio Club EI1E (Ops. Denis EI4KH and Gerard EI5KF) on winning Overall. Congratulations to Declan EI9HQ as the leading single-operator and winner of the High Power Unassisted section, also to Clive GM3POI as winner of the 12-hour HP section and Irmantas LB1AH on winning the Rookie and Single element sections. A small number of logs were received well after the 24-hour log submission deadline and could not be included in the results - sorry. More Results tables, Winner 's names, Awards info, Checklogs etc will be added next week. Scroll down for Soapbox comments and some Statistics. Half of the UBN files have been e-mailed to entrants today (11th Oct) and the rest will be e-mailed next week. The UK/EI DX CW contest is on 31st March/1st April 2018 73 Chris GM3WOJ / GM2V - Adjudicator
