The United Kingdom and Ireland Contest Club

UK/EI DX SSB Contest - 22nd/23rd September 2018

Thanks for entering the 4th UK/EI DX SSB contest! We hope you enjoyed the event and will enter our UK/EI DX CW contest in March 2019. We are pleased to receive 220 entries (incl Checklogs) this year - up from 150 last year - a 47% increase. UK/EI entries are also up, from 45 to 50. Despite the poor conditions there was a good showing from EU and further afield but activity from the UK and EI continues to be disappointing. The success of this format relies on DX stations having good numbers of 'home' stations to work for potential multipliers.So all UK and EI participants who took part please tell your friends and fellow club members (a) how much fun you had, and (b) the conditions are bound to improve! More activity from UK/EI will make this contest more fun for everyone. Please also submit your log, particularly if you make a significant number of contacts - we make this very easy and every log improves the adjudiction accuracy. The results below are now final (October 1st). Further tables will appear in due course. The overall winner this year is Chris, GM3WOJ operating GM2V and who wins the superb Kenwood Cup for the second time. He has now won the main prize in both modes, an excellent achievement. (When it became clear he could be in line for an award Chris relinquished any further involvement in the adjudication process and handed everything over to his fellow adjudicators). Overall EU winner is Marius YO3CZW operating the club station YP0C, and Mohammed A41NN in Muscat was the leading DX entrant. Winner of the Low Power section is Valery US0YW operating the club station of UR2Y with Giovanni IZ7FLP leading the qrp section. Kolja DK5KK was the leading Rookie entrant this year having been licenced for just 2 years. Congratulations to all winners! Scroll down to read the Soapbox comments and some Statistics. Full details of all awards and certificates will appear here later. The UKEICC team welcome your comments or suggestions about this contest - please e-mail them to Tell us what you think! 73 Stewart GW0ETF, Paul EI5DI - Adjudicators
