The results of the VERON 28MHz SWL Contest 2018 are available now. In both sections (CW & Phone) is the winner Johan Heus NL9723, scoring 125 in the CW category and 45 in Phone.
The propagation on the 10M band was very poor during the contest in December 2018, causing very low activity and low scores. Hopefully in December this year the propagation conditions on 10M will improve a lot!
Next 28MHz SWL Contest will be in the weekend of 14 and 15 December 2019.
