Looks like members have been busy constructing again. Last evening, 24 Jan. we held the annual Construction Contest and had a total of nine entries. The projects were judged according to an agreed score sheet; the judging being done by the members who were present on the night.
In total there are four classes, the Novice Class, for those who have never entered our contest before, the Weekend Special, a class for a project that can usually be done in a weekend, the Kit class, which is self explanatory, and Major Project, a class for construction that is more involved and might include the entrant’s own design as well as complex building.
The winners were: Weekend Special, Dennis, M0JXM, who entered a Desktop Active Loop Aerial. The Kit class, was won by Victor, G3JNB who’s project was a Double Audio Filter, and the Major Project, was won by Stewart, G3RXQ, who showed a Great Circle Map with LEDs to show beam headings as the antenna is rotated. The winners will receive their cups, and plaques at the annual Club Dinner.
