RSGB Club Championship 80m
CDARC GROUP - Latest Scores
22nd May - CW
2nd June - Data
19th June - SSB
7th July - CW
16th July - SSB
We are taking part in the 80m Club Championship which started in February and runs for several months.
This is accessible by everyone as it takes place between 8:00 and 9:30 (local) in the evening and club members participate from their own shacks using their own callsigns. Even if you don't feel confident enough to take part, you can listen to what's going on and gain experience for future events.
Each month, there will be one evening for SSB, one for CW and one for Data. You can take part in any or all of these as each evening is a separate event.
There's more information about dates and rules here: RSGB Contests
Note that, from April, UTC is one hour behind local time so a call made at 20:00 (local) should be logged as 19:00.
