Autumn Series 80m Contests:
.
NARC remained in the overall lead after the first five published results with a points difference of 3938 points.
Previously our lead of more than 4200 points was reduced considerably by our closest rival, the Three As CG who decisively won the 2nd CW contest. However, the NARC Data contesters did an excellent job and scraped back 2940 points.
.
The results for the DATA contest on Wednesday 14/10/20 have been published and in spite of not having Roger's usual high scores this time we did manage to pull off the win.
NARC 10532 points with 18 logs.
3As CG 7592 points with 11 logs.
.
.
Thursday 29th October is the next event in the Autumn Series and will be SSB and we shall really need as many logs as possible.
If we are to stand any chance of winning this series we must have as many contacts as possible for this event.
.
Please submit a log on behalf of NARC even for just a few contacts, every point counts towards the end result.
.
We put our clocks back at 02:00 am on Sunday 25th October, don't be caught out with your clocks at the wrong time.
Bear in mind that the contest starts one hour later in terms of UTC, so propagation on 80m may not be as good as earlier in the month.
So, make a prompt start at 20:00 utc as propagation may worsen before the 21:30 utc finish.
You may check the foF2 critical frequency by visiting the Propquest website:
