Oustanding effort by an excellent team.  High QRN made it hard going on the low bands though, 15 was worse than normal and 10 barely opened at all.

4th Oceania

Lots of runs, lots of fun.  Trouble with the 10m antenna but the rigs, amps and DXcluster all worked.  Despite our good score, we were soundly beaten by our friends at ZM1A. Write-up.

1st ZL
2nd Oceania 

8,872,816
ZL record

Write-up. 6,572 QSOs and 488 mults (132 zones + 356 countries). Soundly beaten in Oceania by AH0BT’s 11 million but we beat VI6NC, KH7CW and other worthy opponents. Extended our ZL record once again!

Oceania DX CW

2nd ZL

4,495,132

Increased once more on the previous year’s winning score with M/2. Write-up. Soundly beaten by ZM1A’s 7 million.

3,294,719

1,500 QSOs and 700 mults was enough to win ZL [being the only M/2 ZL entrant!] but well short of VK4KW’s Oceania-winning score of 7m points. Write-up.

Despite a significant increase on our previous year’s score with nearly twice as many QSOs (2,112 QSOs and  660 mults), this “1st in ZL and 2nd Oceania” thing is getting boooring! We’ll be gunning for 1st  Oceania from now on!

2,291,883

This was the club’s inaugural event as ZM2M using wire dipoles and two beams. Our aims were to have fun, prove the site and radio systems and achieve a respectable score. 3 out of 3! We only made one topband QSO this year so there is definitely room for improvement there. 2,546 QSOs, 115 zones and 234 DXCCs = 394 mults. Watch this space ...
