AFS Team Contest Under Way
We eventually made the decision not to brave the weather, despite a very sunny morning. Now it is getting quite stormy and dark with severe gales of up to 100mph forecast further north from us. The contest is now about half way through and conditions around the UK are very good. The band is busy and plenty of stations to work. Usual problems of stations setting up very close, without calling the frequency first, this is an ongoing problem in all contests but you learn to live with it! The next couple of hours should be interesting as propagation shifts.
