This weekend, I'll be back in Cambridge for three radio-related events: Firstly, I'll be at M4A briefly tomorrow for an short entry in ARRL DX SSB. Then in the evening, we have the Cambridge University Wireless Society annual dinner, followed on Sunday by the Cambridge and District Amateur Radio Club rally.

As I expected, I could only afford three hours on Saturday afternoon to play in this contest. I operated from the G6UW/M4A station with my own callsign, M0BLF/P, as nobody else was there. I had planned to be Search and Pounce only, but (amazingly) found a clear frequency on 20m and decided to CQ, which was almost immediately spotted. So I found myself running as well. Conditions seemed terrible: 15m was barely open (I made 7QSOs S&P and 0 after 15 mins CQing) and so everyone was on 20m, which made the splatter-floor unacceptably high. Anyway, I had 105 QSOs, so not too bad for a non-serious entry.
