The CARC and RATS contest team will again be entering the RSGB 2m May Postcode Contest from our site near Dover. We’ll be using three antenna arrays spread over the site and operating our excellent system built by Alwyn, G8DOH.
As this is a single band contest with postcode multipliers we’ll need at least two operators at any time, one to run the pile-up and the other to search for those elusive postcode multipliers on the SDR.
We’ll also be using Meteor Scatter overnight to reach those far flung corners such as Clive, GM4VVX north of Inverness.
Fingers crossed for some great weather so come along and join the team. We’ll be on site from Friday lunchtime rigging and fiddling, the contest starts at 14:00UTC (15:00 BST) on Saturday and runs for 24 hours.
If you can’t make it in person do try to come on the air for an hour or two and work what you can hear even if you are giving points to our competition. The rules can be found here: http://www.rsgbcc.org/cgi-bin/contest_rules.pl?year=2017&contest=may144
