I had the pleasure this afternoon of visiting the UK Scout Contest Team M0XXT in Dorridge near Birmingham, England. The team led by M0MCX Callum have done an extensive shack refurbishment over the last few months. CQ WPX is a great contest to check out all of the new band pass filters and antenna systems.
Pictured operating Station 1 is Simon M0VKY, Station 2 operated by Callum M0MCX with guest operator Dave VA7AM looking on.
The full team of operators: Callum M0MCX, James M0YOM, Terry G4MKP, Simon M0VKY, David VA7AM.

Band conditions during the Saturday were very poor. Hopes of some good conditions failed to appear after the previous weeks encouraging sunspots prior to the contest.
