70 MHz CW 1999

This year's event saw a sharp increase in both the number on entries and the number of stations worked. Despite this, entrants complained bitterly about the conditions and general lack of activity! Indeed, one entrant claimed that there was greater activity on 23cms SSB. In all 37 different stations appeared in the logs and 16 contacts were made in excess of 400kms.

A number of logging errors were made which appear to be due to the poor conditions. The logs were re-scored using one programme due to surprising discrepancies in distances.

Congratulations go to Martin, G3UKV for an overwhelming victory and to Stuart, GM4AFF for his achievements from his remote location. Ian, G4OUT wins a certificate as the leading entry running less than 25 watts and the Cockenzie and Port Seton ARS gain a certificate for their win in the open section.

Roger, G4BVY
