Stockport Radio Society Contest Group

We are a group of SRS members from the Greater Manchester area who regularly compete in the world’s biggest HF radio sport events. Our low-noise location in the beautiful White Peak, overlooking the Cheshire Plain, offers some of the best operating conditions in the northwest of England. This, combined with our modern, first-class equipment, has ensured Stockport Radio Society’s CG place in the top tier of contest groups in Europe. Presently, we are keen on recruiting and training new members.

The station comprises two FTDX 5000's, each attached to a linear amplifier, facilitating full-legal-power operation on all of the HF contest bands, 160m through to 10. Aerials include TH5 and TH6 beams, Hustlers (verticals) and full-length dipoles – including for Top Band. Two 80-foot trailer towers ensure that the station makes the most of its RF power and antenna equipment. Complementing this is fully-computerised, networked logging and the display of real-time band activity sourced from the DX Cluster, RBN and our own SDR.

Since it was formed in 2007, ‘Golf-Five-Oscar’ has been the recipient of several awards, and have recently won HF Field Day (CW) contest in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.

We enter all four of the CQ World-Wide CW and SSB events each year as well as the RSGB’s IOTA Contest and National Field Day. Operation is generally two-person, either as ‘multi-two’ (for CQ WW) or ‘multi-single’/dual-mode (for IOTA).

For the IOTA Contest, we have established a habit of travelling to an island away from mainland Britain. Our first outing, in 2011, was to Holy Island (EU-124), Anglesey. We ventured to the Orkneys (EU-009) in 2014. For 2015’s contest, we visited Rathlin Island (EU-122), off Northern Ireland and in 2016 and 17 we operated from Arranmore Island (EU-121) off the coast of Donegal.                 Our IOTA activities offer adventure together with great operating experiences.

For National Field Day, we compete on behalf of Stockport Radio Society and, consequently, use an SRS callsign.

We are on the lookout for new people, either to operate or to help out with the construction/pull-down of the station – preferably both – and we are keen to mentor new contesters. Whether you’re just starting out on SSB or are an experienced CW hand (should I say ‘fist’), SRS CG will welcome you.
