Once again in 2010 some of the team of Strumble Head DX & Contest Group are heading down to the farm to have some fun and maybe enter the CQ WPX Phone contest. The boys will be there from 25th March through to the 30th March 2010.
This year they will be testing the G3TXQ Hexbeam built by Ant, MW0JZE, that will be available for use by DX’peditions – see Ants web page for details – and the usual vertical for 40M and maybe 80M will be erected so a couple of bands may be used.
Chris, G1VDP, will be trying his hand at RTTY and may take his 30M vertical for some fun on that band. All contacts are valid for the WAB, WFF and IOTA awards and we have a club QSL card available if requested. Chris will be looking for Japan and Asia on 17M RTTY – this is a most wanted on this band – but he will be taking calls from all callers. The only thing he asks is that the pile up behaves and does as he says or he will go QRT and no one will work him.
Look for MC0SHL before and after CQ WPX and during the contest Chris will use MW9W.
Logs will be uploaded to LOTW each evening and QSL requests via the groups QSL manager Tim, M0URX
