RSGB IOTA Contest 2018

A team from CPSARC are travelling to Tiree (EU008) tonight to take part in the RSGB Islands on the Air Contest (IOTA) which runs from 12:00 GMT Saturday 28 July to 12:00 GMT Sunday 29 July.

Please listen out for GM2T in the contest, we go to a great deal of effort to put a world class contest station on the Island for this contest and have steadily improved over the last 20 years to the point we won our section in 2016 and came second in 2017.

We expect to work in the region of 3500 contacts over the 24 hours, that’s 3 a minute, every minute!

The exchange is ’59 serial number IOTA reference’ eg ’59 001 EU005′

Serial number starts from 001 and increments for each contact you make

The IOTA Reference for the UK mainland is EU005

Please make the effort to listen out for GM2T and work us if you can, we’ll have two stations running throughout the contest, one on SSB and one on CW on 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m so there’s 10 opportunities to work us!
