Post IRTS Counties Contests
IRTS Counties Contests
On Sunday next, 15th September, we have the IRTS 70 cms and 2 metres counties contests.
The 70 cms event is just 30 minutes long, from 2.00 pm to 2.30 pm local time, and this is followed by a 90 minute 2 metres contest, running from 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm local time. Both contests have mixed mode SSB/FM and FM-only sections.
Full details are at www.irts.ie/contests note in particular the permitted SSB frequencies and FM channels, also the QSY Rule that applies to FM channels only.

A bit sad that CW is just for 40m & 80m & not for 2m & 70cm. I'm not much interested in HF, I learnt CW to use it on VHF & above where the mode is very useful & deserves encouragement I would have thought?

This is mainly a FM contest to promote local activity, there does be a small amount of SSB but 75% of activity is FM
