70 MHz Cumulatives 1999

When you get a set of results like this, you begin to wonder if the Isle of Man was on the same planet as the rest of the entrants, but Robert Ferguson certanly was, and turned in an outstanding set of scores from one of the best locations for 4m in the country. In contrast, third and fourth places in the open section was very closely fought with only 4 points seperating John Lemay, G4ZTR and Martyn Vincent, G3UKV. In the end, careful checking changed the order and widened the gap.

Pretty much everyone agreed that session 2 was the best of the bunch, and it is clear that activity is still good on 4m, and the entry to the event was up somewhat on last year.

David Edwards in Cromer, G8NEO, was also QRV, but only heard signals in the last session and was unable to complete any QSOs. David Dodds, GM4WLL and Ross Wilkinson, G0WJR both went out portable this year. Ross operated from 5 different sites to add a little variety to the event, while David tried to operate from his usual site each time, but couldn't make it right up the mountain during the 4th session. In fact it was so windy, that he couldn't even get the antenna more than 5 feet in the air, and that had to be in the lee of the car. Thanks to both of them for making the effort in the middle of winter!

Andy Cook, G4PIQ.
