Bristol Contest Group News

Bristol CG entered RSGB CW NFD as G6YB/P on 6/7th June. We were entering the Open section and experimenting with two radio single signal operation.  It was an interesting learning exercise and we had a great weekend in the sun.

Bristol CG won the 2014/15 season of the Affiliated Societies Super-League. This was a great result after having been narrowly pipped at the post by Camb-Hams the previous year.  In the process we took first place in 4 of the 6 contests that make up the Super-League. Detailed result and contest write-up is here on the RSGB CC site.

National Field Day 2015

Members of the RSGB Bristol Contest Group entered RSGB CW NFD as G6YB/P on 6/7th June.

We were in the Open Section, but treated this as a learning exercise as we have never operated a two radio single signal set-up before.  As a result we had quite a lot of configuration problems with the logging software and spent some time getting used to the Elecraft K3s, spotting SDR and software.

The location was near Marshfield in Wiltshire.

Weather was fine and we had a great weekend.  Well worth the effort !
