Radio Contesting

Portable Station at Blue Knob, NSW

I enjoy Contesting as part of the VK2BOZ team or as a single operator.

Radio contesting involves setting up a portable or home radio station and trying to make as many contacts with other operators as you can over a set period of time. UHF/VHF involves line of sight contacts, sometimes up to 500km, usually from a mountain top. HF signals can travel around the world from just about anywhere.

Portable stations are encouraged, as it is good training for use in case of an emergency or natural disaster. It is done all as a bit of fun, no prize money on offer, the reward being the enjoyment of the hobby.
