2020 Trans Tasman Low Band Contest

Posted: 11 Aug 2020 01:53 AM PDT

I entered into the 2020 Trans Tasman Low Band Contest which is all about
encouraging Low Band activity between VK and ZL.

I operated from my back verandah and made a total of 166 contacts and a
claimed score of 1,712 points.

I ended up with a confirmed score of 1,703 points and came in at 8th place
in the Single Operator-Low Power category.

More information on my time during the contest can be found in a previous
post on my blog at

Thanks to everyone who called and thanks to Alan VK4SN the Award Manager.
