Firstly may I apologise for the delay in getting out the results, but an unexpected operation in hospital delayed my checking of the logs.

It was good to see a good number competing. Some entries never operated. Others failed to send in logs. This not only precludes your results, but also affects the scores of other stations.

It was particularly pleasing to hear Merseyside ACF operating under canvas in the snow in what I believe was their first competion on the NRN. Well done I hope to hear you in future competitions.

We still seem to be plagued by “my message to you is” who else could it be for? It is also “Hello all stations” not call signs.

I am afraid my final details did not write what I intended for scoring of contacts. As it stood it worked out at 40 points per contact. I intended each contact to score 30 plus 10 times the number of frequencies you had contacted that station on. One contact was worth 40 points. 2 contacts were worth 50 points each. Three contacts would score 60 points each etc.

As far as marking the logs was concerned one or two stations logged each contact under each other on normal log sheets. This took much longer to cross check and would not score higher bonus points if it were repeated next year. The logs given are designed to maximise ease of checking.

Next years competition will be the corresponding w/e ie 10th and 11th March 2007

Congratulations to Churchers College and good luck to you all with Summer Whine
