Attention all UK HF Contesters…
It’s been decided to continue operating the series of G-6XX calls in the 2019 Commonwealth Contest (aka BERU) which takes place over the weekend of March 9/10th. This is a preliminary call for volunteers with full licences** to operate the G-6XX call in each of the UK regions, namely G – England, GD – Isle of Man, GI – Northern Ireland, GJ – Jersey, GM – Scotland, GU – Guernsey, GW – Wales. If anyone has any interest in running the call in your area please email me direct.
Only essential requirements are to be able to operate all bands 80m-10m and for the whole 24hours (HQ stations are multi-op**). As an HQ bonus you can work UK stations so should be nicely busy but focus will always be on Commonwealth/DX; therefore an amp will be useful and decent antennas highly desirable (but I’ve done a reasonable job with wire antennas here albeit it’s a good location with low man made noise…)
There are already a couple of possibilities for G6XX but all suggestions welcomed. It would be great to have all 7 regions activated.

** HQ stations are classed as Multi-Op so licensees below Full could operate under supervision
