Islands on the Air Contest, July 1999



Back to Events



IOTA, Multi-Operator, 24-25th July 1999.

Andy's 80m phased slopers were used to great effect for the first time in this contest. We only operated SSB. My diary records "feelings of euphoria about contest" on Wed 28th, 3 days after the contest.

Call M4R. Operators; Simon G4EAG, Andy G4KNO and Mark G4AXX.

Here's the detail from the summary sheet.
