June 70MHz UKAC


After the success during the previous Sunday's 4m contest, thoughts turned to the 4m UKAC the following Tuesday evening. Blorenge is much more hospitable at this time of week and it was much easier to get to directly after work than British Mountain

This time we used Rogers Van to support the 5 ele Powabeam at 20' Again the K3S drove the Anglian transverter then the I0JXX amplifier module, all operated from the Honda Jazz.

There was some DX heard while setting up from EA and IC8, but it disappeared as the contest started. Conditions on tropo were poor, but we ploughed on, listening around between qsos. We found EA6SX who we worked at 1442km as the best DX. After this excitement the search for multipliers continued. No continental DX was worked. Northern English squares were well represented but despite calling a lot that way, there were no sign of GM stations. 109 QSOS were made in total



Nice Sunset

Postscript
The results have been published very speedily... within 12 hours of the entry deadline, AND the writeup contained more details than "the next contest is on xx/xx/2016! Looks like only our station worked the Sporadic-E
