QRP HOURS Contest

Updated: Oct 24, 2022

Contests

The Club runs QRP Contests on a formal and informal basis throughout the year. These contests give you a chance to test your QRP operating skills, your QRP equipment and to meet other QRP operators in a fun and challenging way.


QRP HOURS Contest

The QRP Hours Contest runs from time to time during the year. It is named because of the way it is structured: with one hour dedicated to CW and digital modes, followed by one hour of SSB. The QRP Hours Contest varies throughout the year, operating with slightly different conditions, predominantly what bands are permitted, conditions permitting.


Schedule

The next QRP Hours Contest has been scheduled for: Sunday, October 23 2022 on 40M

Please have a look at the contest rules: QRP Hours Contest 2022 October Rules

The aim of the contest is to make as many contact in a one-hour period using your choice of mode.




UPDATED: 24th Oct.

Both myself VK3NCR and Roy VK3GB headed out to a Park/Football reserve that has a little bit of height.. around 130mtrs above sea level.


To keep this short.. we ran my IC705, using the FRC100W UNUN into the 40Mtr EFHW antenna.. But ! Band conditions were the worst for a long time.. almost no stations heard.

However it was good for a laugh and a good chat.

Would have been good it others from the club had come along.
