Halfway! Double Points & Fatigue Sets In Ham Radio Contest | Stream #3

12 hours down, 12 to go…1am local time, the grind is real! All points are doubled between 1am and 6am so it’s prime time to make as many contacts as possible. Just keep calling and logging! Am I asleep yet? Wake me up in the chat please! This stream will run for 6 hours – then I will switch over to this one here –

That’s right, I’m streaming a ham radio contest for 24 HOURS! How many contacts will I make? Will I stay awake? Tune in to find out!

*Please note I cannot show my operating frequency as that is self spotting and against the spirit of the contest*

*The logging software used is VKCL* (no longer developed) –

My goal is to beat my previous personal bests:
VK7HH Personal Best: 1030 points (2021 – 2nd place)
Cronies +1 Team Personal Best: 2932 points (2021 – 1st place)

About the Remembrance Day Contest:

This contest commemorates the Amateurs who died during World War II and is designed to encourage friendly participation and help improve the operating skills of participants. It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area.

A perpetual trophy is awarded annually to the Australian state or territory with the best performance. The name of the winning State or Territory is inscribed on the trophy, and that State or Territory then holds the trophy for 12 months. The winning State or Territory is also given a certificate, as are leading entrants.
