80th Commonwealth Contest – March 11-12, 2017

6 Mar

Message from Brian Summers VE7JKZ

“This coming weekend 11th/12th March will be the 80th running of the RSGB Commonwealth Contest. The oldest DX contest in the world as it happens.

I’ve been operating in this contest for close to 40 years as VE3JKZ, VE6JKZ, and then VE7JKZ. For the past several years I’ve been operating as VE7RAC an HQ station worth bonus points to those who work me. With the rotten propagation I’m expecting long periods of cq’ing with few responses, but you never know what exotic dx might suddenly pop up and unless you’re on the air you will not know.

As an HQ station I can work other VE7s so if you do get on I’ll be pleased to work you.
