CQ WPX 2000 (SSB) as GX6YB

This was the group's first go at a 48 hour World-wide contest in four years, and it remains our most successful as you can see from the results below.

We operated from a site called Hanging Hill on the edge of Lansdown that we had used the previous year for SSB Field Day. Conditions were very good that weekend, but the signal reports showed that this site was outstanding.

There was so much activity on the HF Bands that we didn't spend enough time on the LF bands and missed 40m completely. However this was the result:

#1 England
#3 Europe
#8 World


Vic G0WKW(now SM7ZDI) Robin G3TKF, Alan G3XSV, Neil M0AXF(now EI7JE), Stuart G4KDS, Matt G7ORR(M0MAT)
