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.
