I hope to be on for 3 of the 4 sessions of the RSGB 50/70/144/432MHz Christmas Cumulatives Contest.

The times are 14:00-16:00 UTC so nice short sessions. I hope to activate the club call on the 26th, 28th and 29th, I can’t do the 27th as I’m visiting relatives but if someone else wanted to have a go feel free.  We will be entering the single operator fixed section of the contest which is what we did in the 70 MHz cumulatives. This contest is a little more interesting because it also includes country multipliers, that means that I will be trying very hard to work PA, ON, GM, GI, GW and EI stations! All are possible, it depends on activity.

I had a go in the Geminids meteor shower on 4m. I was active in the evening of the 13th until early on the 14th December. As ever it was a very good shower but the activity on 4m was disappointing. I have to conclude that the best band for Meteor Scatter is definitely 2m where there appeared to be a lot more activity if the QSO maps on the ON4KST pages were anything to go by. We will have a good 2m station some time in the Spring.

Anyway I managed the following 7 QSOs, the last one was tough with plenty of other callers as SP7VC/8 in KN19 was a DXpedition. Pleased to work the new square.
