50MHz UKAC April 2014 Results

The Following is from Roger - G4BVY

There was a slightly reduced number of entries, 186, this month. There were 321 active stations in 26 UK squares and 6 non-UK squares. Although most entrants commented that the conditions were flat to poor, activity, multiplier totals and the distances worked all saw an increase. This month M1MHZ (IO92) and G4TSW (IO80) worked 19 squares, M0WLF (IO81) worked 17 squares and GI4SNA (IO64), M0GVG/P (IO83), G3VCA (IO93) and M0VXX/P (IO82) all worked 16 squares. Three Sporadic E QSOs took place with the best DX going to GI4SNA who worked S57RR at 1721 kms. The best tropo contact was between M0XII/P (IO91) and EI9JU at 572kms. There were 39 tropo QSOs greater than 400kms. The adjudication saw 5.7% of QSOs disallowed with RST mis-copies the greatest source of error followed by locator errors.

So looking at the table for the last four month I've still managed to maintain 4th position out of 174 entries so far within the restricted section, hopefully band conditions will improve with some nice Sporadic E & Tropo for the May 50MHz UKAC at 20:00 local time on Tuesday 27th May 2014.

Look forward to working you on the air in the next contest. ;)
