RSGB 144MHz Backpackers' Contest 2012 Results

This year the M0REG/P team only managed to enter three of the Backpackers' Contests, meaning that all three would count towards the overall score with none "spare".

The year got off to something of an inauspicious start, although we came 5th in the May contest we were so far behind the winner that we only scored 230 points. June saw a big improvement as although we still came 5th our score improved to 564 points. Our final effort of the season was September where we placed 4th, although we were still a long way behind the leaders with 392 points. (In each session the leader's score is normalised to 1000 points.)

Overall, somewhat surprisingly, we achieved 4th place with 1186 points, an improvement on last year's 5th place. Although with 850 points separating us from third place we have a big challenge ahead of us to improve on our placing again next year!

Most pleasingly, we did not drop a single point due to logging errors throughout the entire contest series!
