Ireland 80m Counties Contest

The Irish Radio Transmitters Society will launch its 75th Anniversary celebrations on New Year's Day with the 80 metre Counties Contest.

This was a very popular event last year with almost 100 EI and GI stations active.

Given that's its the society's Jubilee Year, we are asking everybody to make a special effort to be QRV, for at least part of the Contest which runs from 1200 to 1500 hours local
time. Full rules are available on the Society website

As a special incentive, all stations who submit a log to the contest manager will be awarded a special Participation Certificate to hang on the shack wall.

In addition, there will be a special Jubilee Year edition of the Worked All EI Counties Award available for award chasers. QSOs for this award must be made during 2007.

Given last years 80 metre Counties Contest activity, is
it possible that a '26 Counties endorsed' Award number
One will be achieved on the first day of the new year?
