RESULTS - 432MHz AFS Contest
This was an RSGB Affiliated Societies Contest held on 2nd February 2014
Two CDARC members, David G6KWA and Steve G8CRB participated in this contest as the 'CambHams B' team.
Scoring was simple - 1point per kilometer. Stations were required to give Signal Report, Serial and their 6 character locator.
G6KWA (using the club callsign G2XV/P) scored 7,563 to gain 10/24 place in the overall open section. G8CRB came 58/74. With just these two operators, the team achieved 21/44
The winner, taking the cup, was 'Cambhams A' comprising G4NBS-Tony, G6UW-Cambridge University Wireless Society, G3PYE/P- CambHams members and G4ERO-Colin.
Very well done to all concerned.

RSGB Club Championship
We are taking part in the 80m Club Championship which will run for several months and starts with an SSB event on Monday 3rd February.
This is accessible by everyone as it runs 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.
Listen out for CDARC members' callsigns, including:
There's more information about dates and rules here: RSGB Contests
Note that we're running a 'getting started' evening for these events on Friday March 14th - don't miss it
