SDWS MEMBERS RECEIVE RSGB CONTEST AWARDS

SDWS MEMBERS RECEIVE AWARDS IN RSGB 5OMHz TROPHY CONTEST…

Two of our members, G3YJR and M6JIJ have received certificates for their entries in the June 2015 RSGB 50MHz Trophy. Graham, G3YJR for the Highest Placed 25W/Single antenna station and John M6JIJ for the highest placed Foundation Licensee.

John used a very modest vertical antenna and just 10 watts. All entrants in the contest were help by the remarkable Sporadic E conditions at the time. Graham worked his best every DX NP4A (Puerto Rico) at 6761km while John’s low power and quarter wave groundplane bagged E7TT at 1886km.

Many congratulations to both!
