Three members of the Bristol Contest Group went to Malta for the 2018 IOTA Contest. We were kindly hosted by the Marconi Amateur Radio League located in Mtarfa. The special call 9H6YB was used for the IOTA Contest weekend of 28th/29th July. Conditions were extremely good, including several good openings on 10m and 15m.
