VHF Contesting

Andrew, G4VFL is our king of contesting. He will be giving you the low down on the UKAC contest series as well as the benefit of his years of experience in setting up and operating portable. We’ll have a quick talk and a long natter as he goes through the in’s and out’s of his station, how and more importantly where to set it up. We’ll also be covering what you can do to help the club on a Tuesday night.
