432 MHz Fixed Contest August 1999

Again this year there was nothing special in the way of conditions to report for this contest, with most entrants reporting flat to poor propagation throughout. The proceedings were enlivened by the big signal from Richard Thoen PE1OUP who was trying out a new PA and antenna combination. His efforts netted a fine second place and leading overseas entry in the single operator group, with Richard Baker GD8EXI taking the top position with the highest overall score, and giving many entrants their best DX in the process.

There were several portable stations out for this event, and as part of the rule changes for 2000 all of the contests which are currently designated Fixed contests will include an Open section. Most of the entries were e-mailed, which reflects an increasing trend these days, but if you don't have computer logging facilities please send a paper entry if you can - all logs are welcome. Congratulations to all of those receiving certificates and see you again next year.
