4m Trophy 1999

The popularity of 4m contests continues with nearly 150 stations active during the 4m Trophy. The weather was the main topic on the cover sheets, most had some sort of bad weather either on the night before the contest or on the day itself, and the wind was so strong at GM4SIV that even with a 4ft turning handle the antenna would not budge.

Despite a lower average score than some of the more remote stations, a combination of a high number of both QSO's and multipliers put The Northern Lights CG, GD0EMG at the top of the Open Section this year and are awarded the VHF Manager's Trophy. A similar strategy gave Steve Redfern G4AEQ a commanding lead in the Single Operator Fixed Section. Brian Coleman G4NNS wins the 25w/single-antenna certificate.
