QSO’s not Eligible Any HF/VHF/UHF QSO’s via a repeater do not count

The aim of the event is to get on the air and work as many stations that you can in the allotted time period plus at the same time have some fun. Using the World Wide Locator (WWL) system as part of the exchange gives the ability to measure the distance between your location and the contacts location and it also offers the challenge to obtain the remote contacts WWL. I have certainly noticed that over 98% of all QSL cards that I receive have the stations locator written on the card so obtaining one should, hopefully be quite easy. Note: I will accept the locator as 4 characters (FN32) if that is what the station gives you but please try to obtain the full 6 characters as this will give a very accurate distance. If 4 characters are given I will use the centre of the square which is LL to make the locator FN32LL
Lastly, we are Radio Amateurs after all and we are supposed to get on the air and make contacts so come on then let me see you doing it.
After the Event:
After the event can you send me a copy of your log, example below so that I can write up some report on what you all managed to achieve plus why not update the club tables and show everyone else what you achieved.
