Final 4m UKAC of 2011

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

After catching M0NUT/P briefly during the 6m event last week, they reminded us it seemed to be between us and them in the restricted section of the 4m event, so the race was on this Tuesday... A slightly late arrival in Flossie (it took longer to buy the custard-topped mince pies ...

SSB Field Day & 144MHz Trophy Contest

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Last year, we entered these contests for the first time, and despite doing reasonably well on 2m (7th in our section, and best placed for a single antenna entry), we thought we could improve on our HF score of just under 200k points significantly this year. With that in mind, we ...

In March, we entered the RSGB March 144/432MHz contest, with 2E0SQL, M0LCM, M0MJH, M0VFC and M1BXF manning Flossie for the our entry in the “6 hour other” section. The results have just been announced, and we came second in the 2m table, and second overall in our section – so ...

Last October, the RSGB announced the creation of the new Affiliated Societies "Super League": the combination of the results in the four AFS contests starting with 2m in December, then two 80m (CW and SSB) events in January, and finally 70cm in February. It sounded like fun, so a few of ...

March 144/432MHz Contest

Monday, March 7th, 2011

This was the first time we'd entered the March 144/432 contest - indeed, looking back at our logs, it's not quite a year ago that we first started playing in the VHF contests to begin with. The usual suspects of M0LCM, M0VFC and M1BXF were joined in Flossie by the slightly ...

AFS Super League update

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

In 2010, the RSGB introduced a new contest series: the AFS "Super League", combining the results of the 2m, 70cm, 80m CW and 80m SSB AFS events. The Camb-Hams have joined forces with the Cambridge University Wireless Society, and after an excellent result in the 2m AFS (with our "A" ...

144MHz AFS 2010 Results

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

On 3rd December 2010, the Camb-Hams made their first serious entry in the RSGB 144MHz AFS contest. The previous year, I made a total of 10 QSOs as M0VFC - something I aimed to beat in 2010! The results are now out, and we certainly managed to do that: the "Camb-Hams ...
