M0BBB and M0TDG were portable around Cambridge for this one while G3ZAY and newly licenced M0TJH manned G6UW for our first full 3 station entry into the this competition for 3 years. Local QRN hampered our efforts somewhat and antenna and transceiver problems led to M0BBB only being able to operate for some of the time. M0TDG was operating from the terrace of his College’s sports ground in what became sub-zero temperatures by the end and this reduced his rate (as well as his ability to type or speak) by the end.
Scores were as follows:
|Callsign||QSOs||Points claimed||Points after checking||Position|
The final results put us in 9th place overall which was quite pleasing as we could still improve on our score by a lot provided we sort out the equipment problems and we weren’t too far off the 6th place score. A top 5 score could well be possible if we can muster 3 stations again next year.
