AFS 80m SSB
Yesterday was the AFS 80 metres SSB Contest. Conditions were not good but we think both teams did as well as can be expected. We did not manage to put a third team up as the dipole at Lancaster Uni was not available during the afternoon. Chris and Ian did find a run frequency at the very beginning but, as soon as the contest started, another station set up half a KC below, making the frequency impossible to use. Next year the linear may have to be used at one of the stations. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable 4 hours for both teams, just don't ask G0YLM about the apple pie "incident"!
