Usually VSQ members Iain M0PCB, Chloe M0GEJ and Pete 2E0SQL join the HamTests team for the IOTA contest and operate as MU0HTJ. This year, due to the incredibly unfortunate and untimely passing of Louis 2U0FER plans changed somewhat.
Already we had decided that in 2015 the Vulture’s short contest call would be used as GU9V, and the team comprised Iain M0PCB, Pete, 2E0SQL, Paul M0TZO, Tom 2U0TKB and Rob 2U0WGE. Massive thanks for all the help provided by the Guernsey ARS in the guise of a hexbeam and mast, tent-age and general support.
A reasonably even split of CW vs SSB again this time and some decent run rates. The short call certainly helped keep interest up and made for a fun contest. Originally planned as a much more relaxed and small scale effort we exceeded our previous score and logged the same number of QSOs as last year.
We operated and also camped at the Les Maingys Scout Activity Centre, who were very kind to let us erect the antennas in a field to ourselves.
