G7LFC operating during the 2010 RSGB AFS ContestWell that was supposed to be a very intense day of Amateur Radio contesting – turned out to be a bit of a damp squid.

The 144MHz AFS Contest is for Amateur Radio Clubs affiliated to, and members of, the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB). The event started at 10:00 and finished at 17:00 and five members of the Southport & District Amateur Radio Club took part as a team.

Things weren’t to bad in the morning, but as time dragged on past lunch time fewer and fewer new contacts were to be heard. This isn’t because there weren’t any around, they just couldn’t be heard because propagation conditions were a bit on the poor side and there was lots of interference on the band.

Anyway, the event’s over now and you can find out how I got on on my Amateur Radio contest page. Once my submitted log has been confirmed I will post final results there.
