Happy to report that we smashed last year's points total. The contest has been a great success, helped by wonderful weather and great hospitality! It was the first outing for the Elecraft K3 and it has performed flawlessly, showing what a great contest radio it is. Conditions have been reasonable, although the lower bands could have been better for us, the low noise floor helped considerably. Everyone has had a chance to do some operating and Jay certainly enjoyed his weekend on the key. Next is IOTA in two weeks time so we barely have time to breathe before setting the stations up again...lets hope the weather is as kind down at Sunderland Point!
