CRAY VALLEY AWARD
The Cray Valley award is given for making a number of contacts with CV-RS members or CV-RS Special Event stations. Contacts with a member are worth 1 point and with a Special Event station 3 points. For DX stations the award can be Basic (5 points), Bronze (10 points), Silver (20 points), and Gold (25 points). The maximum number of Special Event stations that can be included is 5. To get the Gold award even if you work 5 Special Event stations you still have to work 10 individual members, and that's not too easy.
Mike Streeter WM5DX is the first DX station to receive the Gold award which was presented to him at the CV-RS club meeting in London on 16th October. He worked 4 Special Event stations and 14 members for a total of 26 points.
DL-DX RTTY Contest 2014
Mike WM5DX operated in Category A was single op, unlimited power, 24 hours. He ran about 400 watts to my Mosley beam at 55 feet and his Force 12 beam at 45 feet for about 17 hours. He was quite busy with 520 QSO's in the 17 hours. He did not use the DX Cluster, he kept the Mosley looking at Europe and the Force 12 looking at Japan so he did not waste time rotating. Only one radio, the Icom 746.
Mike said it was a great contest. Mike finished 3rd in North America and 17th world wide.
WAY TO GO MIKEEEE……
