Hello UK HF contesters

Hoping you will support your national team this weekend - GR2HQ will be active in the IARU HF Championship.  1200z-1200z 11th/12th July - 160m to 10m - SSB and CW. (the GB2RS news item was wrong - this is a dual mode contest). That means there are potentially 12 separate GR2HQ stations for you to find and work.

Because of the pandemic, all stations this year are single-operator, from their home QTHs.

The exchange is your ITU Zone - all of the UK is in Zone 27, so you should send '59(9) 27'.   GR2HQ will be sending '59(9) RSGB'

Inter-UK QSOs on 40m and higher bands can be difficult due to skip conditions, so please persevere if you hear a GR2HQ station with a pile-up of strong Europeans - you will get through hopefully.  Any GR2HQ station will be happy to tell you what frequency any of the other GR2HQ stations are operating on - just ask.
