For the 2014 leg of CQWW CW I was invited by Don G3BJ to join the team at G5W in a M/2 HP entry, gunning for the G record.
The team comprised myself, Don G3BJ, Mike G3WPH and John G4DRS. As ever Hilary G4JKS and Don were great hosts and the contest was great fun. M/2 certainly kept the interest up on both radios. As we all know mult hunting can be hard work. Of course with M/2 there is a balance to be struck to find the multipliers. They don’t all find you.
The claimed score is:
Operator(s): G3BJ G3WPH G4DRS MØPCB
Class: M/2 HP
Operating Time (hrs): 48
Location: Northern Europe
The record was far surpassed and we were placed 1st in England, 9th in Europe and 23rd in the World. On top of that we set a new England record, which after adjudication is set at 13,974,317 points.
