Details

This contest is the oldest contest for radio amateurs and is specifically aimed at the countries of the Commonwealth, headed by our Queen, Queen Elizabeth II.

Contact is made between countries of the Commonwealth, or the British Empire Radio Union as it was known, with points being scored for each contact. All this takes place on the short wave amateur radio bands of 80M, 40M, 20M 15M and 10Meters using Morse Code, also known as CW. Each contact consists of the callsign, a short report of readability, signal strength & tone along with a serial number starting from number one.

Tony (G4LDL), Charles (M0OXO) and Chris (G1VDP) all had a go making contact with others from the commonwealth.

And this year it is also special as the contest is 75 years old, and so is also commemorating the diamond jubilee. All details can be found on the BERU website.
