On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Diamond Jubilee Committee of the Bangalore Amateur Radio Club, it gives me great pleasure to announce the results of the Garden City VHF Simplex contest organised during March 2019. This contest was organized to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee Year of BARC, to expose the Amateur radio operators in Bengaluru and surround areas to contesting and to test out the antenna and operating setup of the radio operators.
We hope the contestants enjoyed the experience and were able to bring about some changes to their setup to improve their operating experience.
Although the logs received indicated around 65 unique callsigns participating in the contest – including the Special event callsign AU60BARC, logs were received from only 23 stations – excluding the Special event station. It would have been very helpful if all stations – even with single QSO had sent in their logs.
On scrutiny of the logs received, the following is the final result of the contest.
FIRST PLACE: VU3JIM – OM Jim
SECOND PLACE: VU3VXJ – OM Sudhanva
THIRD PLACE: VU2GRM – OM Ram
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all for participating. Hope to receive a good number of logs for the Garden City 40M Mixed mode contest also.
