The IARU Region 1 ATV Contest was held on 13⁄14 June 2020.
Due to travel restrictions in some countries caused by the COVID 19
Pandemic, the main scoring tables have been split into 2 sections.
Section 1 is for entrants who only operated from their home station
address, whereas those operating from alternative addresses or
portable locations entered Section 2.
There were 92 entrants from 8 countries competing, using all bands from 432 MHz to 76 GHz.
The Overall winner of Section 1 for fixed stations was Wim PE1EZU,
while Francesco IK3HHG won Section 2 and had the highest overall
Propagation conditions appeared to be good across Southern
Europe with a number of contacts (even on 3 cm) at over 200 km. The best DX was a 70 cm ATV Contact between F5AGO and F1CSY at 370 km.
Participation was much increased from last year (55 to 92), which is a very welcome sign.
Please don’t forget next year’s IARU ATV Contest on 12⁄13 June 2021.
