Doug Gorman Memorial Frequency Measuring Contest 2011 – Results

WVHFG Categories

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.

WVHFG Categories

Each year on 18 April, radio amateurs celebrate World Amateur Radio Day. On that day in 1925 the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) was founded.

In 2011, the theme for this year’s celebration is Amateur Radio: The First Technology-Based Social Network.

In ZL-land, our own radio network is the UHF National System, so the Group is issuing a QSL card for contacts with the special event station ZL2WARD.

Listen for the Special Event Station ZL2WARD on the National System on World Amateur Radio Day, Monday the 18th of April 2011.
