As you may have seen the results of the CW AFS have been published where NARC Team A came a creditable 4th in the Local Club section.

Our team B also came in at 10th and team C 30th (only 3 members) out of a total of 55 entries in that section. A good result and well done to all that took part.

Of note was that Peter M0RYB/P kept up his usual QRP performance coming second in that category. Also Phil G4LPP, still in the ‘learning’ process of Morse, made it into team A with an excellent score.

As we are rapidly approaching the start of the Club Championships with SSB on 3rd Feb I will shortly publish the final listings of the two teams taking into account any new calls to be added to the list after further discussion at the club tonight.

Have lots of fun with your chosen contests in the coming 12 months,

 

February isn't far away and on Monday 3rd February the 80m Club Championship begins again for another 18 contests.

.
Also the RSGB 1st 1.8MHz contest is 8th February 1900 to 2300utc, so you'll need to get those 160m dipoles up in time.

8th and 9th it is the CQ WPX RTTY contest, 48hours starting 0000utc on 8th February - good for DXCC hunting early in the year.
.
For future events keep looking at:

RSGB HF Contest Calendar:
https://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/
.
RSGB VHF Contest Calendar:
https://www.rsgbcc.org/cgi-bin/readcal.pl?year=2020
.
Some rule changes have also been implemented so always study the current rules for this year's contests and don't assume that you know the rules because you last read them in 2015 !
.
Another useful source of non-RSGB and WW events can be found here in Bruce's (WA7BNM) weekly listings:
https://www.contestcalendar.com/weeklycont.php#9858
.
Again, always download and study the rules for other countries' contests as they often have different terms and conditions than those we are used to.
.
Two more to keep you contesting:
.
24th January at 2200utc to 26th January at 2200utc it is the CQ WW 160m CW contest.

25th January at 1200utc to 26th January at 11:59utc it is the first of BARTG's HF RTTY Contests.
.
.
VHF events:

The Final event in the 2019/20 AFS Super League takes place on Sunday 2nd February from 0900utc to 1300utc
UK Activity Contests.
.
