Christmas Repeater Contest

Post by g8gtz » Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:43 am

Starting on Boxing Day (26th December) and running through to 2359 UTC on New Year’s Day we are organising the BATC Winter ATV Repeater Contest.

This will run over the 7 days when most people are able to get in the shack and will have a simplified structure with scoring based solely on distance from the transmitting station to the repeater at one point per kilometre. This system will also allow receiving via a stream feed to be a valid contact that will generate points for the transmitting station.

You are allowed to claim one QSO on each band with every station per day worked, so if your repeater has two inputs on different bands you can work the same station twice on the same day if you use both bands. And you can get valid points from working the same stations every day!

A certificate will be awarded for the station with most points and the runner up plus we will be awarding a £50 prize to the repeater group who saw the most claimed contacts through their repeater. The contest rules and more details are on the activity web page
