Marconi Memorial CW Contest last weekend

More traditional activity at G4VXE last weekend during the 144MHz Marconi Memorial Contest. This is a CW contest and though activity isn't generally frenetic, there's usually enough to be of interest.

I managed a few quick sessions on the air and though conditions were pretty poor, I was pleased to work a couple of stations from the Netherlands (PA6NL and PC5M) as well as several French stations, around JN19 area. I did hear a weak German station at one point but didn't make contact.

Enjoyable contacts!
