Our club took part in the International Amateur Radio Union – High Frequency Championship (IARU-HF) contest last month. It was a weekend event, but we operated just on Saturday July 11, 2015, during the day. Participating were Rob KB5EZ, Malcolm K4MLP, Matt KA0S, and Gary WA2JQZ. The several of us operating enabled us to submit as a Multi-Operator, Low Power, Fixed station. We made 124 contacts. Most were in Europe, and North & South America. We operated on SSB and CW, on 20 and 15 meters. A DX entity we worked for the first time was the Finnish Island called Aland Island, with OH0X.
IARU-HF 2014 Award
Meanwhile also, we just received an award from operating the 2014 IARU-HF contest last year. We achieved 75 multipliers, which enabled us to win an Operating Achievement Award for the Alabama Section.
