Homebrew QRP Contest... With DSB!

Walford Electronics Brendon 80m DSB kit

Hi Bill
I trust all is well and that the roadkill PCs are not fighting back. Thought you might like to hear about a new contest we are trying here in the UK. Having assisted lots of new knack victims to build their first rigs at the 3 Bath Buildathons we thought we should encourage them to get on the air - 30 QRP DSB rigs on 80m all at once - now that's what I call a contest.
We have opened it up to any QRP voice radio to cover the QRP appliance operators but homebrewers get extra points. Not sure how much support we are going to get but there is a £50 voucher for Walford Electronics kits up for grabs.
Hopefully this will be a fun contest with freindly extended exhanges rather than the all too common '599 1002 73 QRZ'. Picture is the Walford Electronics Brendon 80m DSB kit in all its glory.
73, Steve, G0FUW

  1. I think this is a marvelous idea, especially the bit about giving extra points to home-brew users. I don't have anything home-brew for SSB (unless my K2 counts.) It would be nice to organize something like that on CW to encourage people to dig those Pixies and Rockmites out but I guess it would be a bit of a problem with everyone rockbound on the same frequency!
