Organized by:Radio Society of Great Britain
Date:Multiple dates in 2020

The RSGB organizes a FT4 contest on 80M almost every month. The contest last only 90 minutes on every contest day so there is not much time to make QSOs. I have participated in the ‘10W Non UK‘ section as my antenna is not really suited for 80M and I curious was what I could do with this mismatched antenna on 10 Watts.

I entered this contest in September and was only able to take part in the last three rounds. After the September round I ended up in 10th place overall, after the October round I climbed one position higher to 9th place. The final round I scored a bit less than in the previous two rounds but this was enough to climb from 9th place to 4th overall. A nice result given that I’ve only participated in three rounds.
