Back to 2009, we ran a challenge as part of our 25 Years Club Anniversary. As part of this challenge, The Left Handed Capacitor Trophy in memory of Vic GM4GGF was awarded to the winner of the Foundation Licence holder with the “most Distant QSO”. Martyn MM0XXW, then MM3XXW won this.
Another challenge where the trophy could be once more presented, but this time on an annual basis was created in 2011. The idea suggested by Cambell MM0DXC was to present it to the person who has been licensed for up to one year, and makes the greatest number of QSO’s during our Club Radio Events. The aim is to encourage newer operators to “operate” and help overcome any microphone hesitancy.
