The results of the NZART Doug Gorman Memorial Frequency Measuring Contest 2011 are presented below. These results are provisional and have been checked carefully but if you think an error has crept in please let NZART HQ know as soon as possible.
This year was a very interesting turnaround from last year with several entries in the Norm Edwards category beating out Ultra entrants with Mike ZL4OL showing how it’s done. The four top scores were all better than the first place result from last year, no doubt a combination of better technique and propagation conditions.
A great contest thanks to everyone for their interest. This was the 59th running of the NZART DGMFM Contest and there were more check-ins with ZL6A after the event than ever. Thanks to ZLs 1AOX, 1AUA, 1VD, 1MR, 1DK, 1IE, 1TBG, 1FAV, 2BFY, 2MUR, 2CMC, and 2TNG for saying hello. I have already received one entry from ZL4OL via NZART HQ email so thanks Mike for being the first in with your results and showing it wasn’t just a North Island showing. I understand that Murray ZL1BPU who had been running some practice sessions. Stay tuned for more next week. John ZL4JY

My apologies but for reasons beyond my control the contest will be run on Monday 12th September 2011 at 2100 NZST one week later than previously advertised.
For the second year the contest will be a blend the old rules with improvements suggested by contestants. Please read the rules carefully.
Congratulations to the winners and a big thanks to everyone who participated. More contests are coming, so check out the bottom of each results section for upcoming events!
