(UPDATE – Based on claimed raw scores we are 1st in the U.K. in the Multi-Single category.)
A team of operators manned Woop Woop 3 for the CQWW SSB Contest over the weekend of October 27/28. 2443 contacts were made for a claimed score of just over 2.3M points in the Multi-Single category. The 40m 4-square antenna and the 80m vertical will probably be left up for members to use over the winter.
The antennas are shown below: 80m vertical, 40m 4-square, 5 element 15m Yagi on 40ft SCAM, and regular 3 ele SteppIR in distance.
Life Member Rob, G3YZO, operated and brought along this picture of the original Woop Woop building in Grange Road which the club vacated in 1970. It was an ionospheric research lab before it was taken over by CUWS. Note that it wasn’t the first club shack – that was in the Old Cavendish in town.
