RSGB Contests -
You will find both calendars -
Currently enjoying the RSGB contests, 80m Club Championships where I usually enter the CW & SSB contests.
The VHF (144MHz & 432MHz) contests (UKAC etc.) and 144MHz backpackers.
Also the Practical Wireless QRP competition and BERU
Contesting is not the ‘Be ALL & End ALL’ of Amateur Radio, but it does get people on the Air. I am relatively new to contesting and join in with some of the contests hosted by the RSGB and others. I normally score for The Itchen Valley Radio Club to add to their Club Score. I normally work in Search & Pounce mode as I have not yet gained the confidence to switch over to ‘Run’ mode. BERU (the Commonwealth Contest) has got to be the best -
