Club Competition Update

The sun decided to throw up on our 160 Meter Party last weekend….and scores show it. As a club, our score was down 41.63% from last year. Yikes! Conditions were poor, and people decided to operate less due to conditions. It looks like members of other clubs felt the same. I’m praying that the other 160M contests will have better conditions!

The Team Competition was very close. The difference in the scores is basically a couple of guys keeping their butts in the chair! It’s that close!
