1st 70 MHz Fixed 1999

Above average conditions were present at times during the event. However, there was slow deep QSB present for the entire event. Stations were patient and the high standard of logging accuracy reflected the efforts made to get all the details correct. Some entrants suffered interference from Polish broadcast stations. Three portable stations from opposite ends of the country made an appearance and boosted activity. In all, just over 100 stations appeared in the logs representing the high level of activity on this band.

Congratulations go to Robert, GD4GNH, for an overwhelming victory in the event and to G4RFR the Flight Refuelling ARS who won the multi-operator section. James, G7UYP, was the leading operator using 25 watts to a single antenna. These stations, together with the runners up in each section will receive certificates.

Checks logs were gratefully received from Peter, G3BPM and David, GM4WLL/P.

Roger Dixon, G4BVY.
