Operating at M2W for CQ Worldwide 2007 Phone Contest

Over the weekend of 27-28th October 2007 I was at the Whitton Amateur Radio Group for the CQ Worldwide 2007 Phone Contest. I was actually there from 6pm Friday night until about 1am Monday morning.

This contest we had a more organised feel and early on we could see that we were doing better than we did in 2006. But this could also be due to running as a Multi-2 station when in 2006 we operated as Multi-Single.

We still had 2 radios, but the 2nd station could operate anything, not just multipliers and could call CQ as well.

We had a set schedule for operators and this was filled out more than 2006.

Like 2006 we had some guest operators. Vlad UA9FAR did a remarkably well. So how did the club do???

Foundation License Here I Come

After sending numerous e-mails to Amateur Radio Clubs I have finally had 2 come back offering courses. After confirming my details to both, I have finally got a start date and amazingly it’s tomorrow.

The Whitton Amateur Radio Group is a fair distance away, but I think will be worth it as my local Radio club (The Sutton And Cheam Radio Society) cannot offer the course.

I have been swotting up by reading my Foundation Licence – Now (See Bottom of Page), and shall take to work to swot up some more.
