After many years of trying and several wins in the 6-hour Open section, CARC and RATS have won the 24-hour open section of the RSGB 2m Trophy contest. The contest is coordinated across the whole of IARU region 1 with the most participants of any VHF contest each year.
The team logged 736 valid QSOs in 24 hours at an average distance of 419km giving an overall total of 308496 points, all record numbers for the team.
The team consisted of Peter G0VVE, Alwyn G8DOH, Andy G7FWE, Mike G0KAD, Zander M1YAP and Stewart G3YSX. We were joined for the first time, and hopefully not the last by Pete G4CLA.
