2018 Lima Radio UK Contest

Today and tomorrow get those radios ready as the Lima Radio UK Contest is going to take place. Below we’ve got the rules for you and be sure if the conditions allow your going to hear some loud stations on air. I believe one group will be some 1700ft above sea level and calling. Below the rules!

2018 Lima Radio UK Contest


The contest is open to all Lima Radio UK over two days

23rd & 24th June Sunrise to Sunset, but date may be subject to change is conditions are unfavorable.

Contest manager is 26LR009 Mick. Log sheets required end of July 2018.


This contest aim is to contact as stations as possible, both LR operators and also non LR (AT, SD, RC, IR). At each QSO generates a progressive number, both given and received. Example; 26LR009 contacts 1LR164, Mick (009) will pass Paolo (164) a progressive number corresponding to the number of contacts made in UK LR contest and Paolo (164) will do the same.

Mick (009) gives 123 and receives 003 and so on…

The progressive numbers are useful to speed up the exchange and for the confirmation of the logging.

Points Scoring: 1 point for every contact made.

Addition of 10 points for contacts with LR stations in UK, but not the same country. (QSO’s among members of the same country are not allowed, 26 div. can’t contact 26 div. but can contact 163, 108, or 68 or vice versa.

Addition of 10 points for LR stations in Europe

Addition of 20 points for LR stations outside Europe ( For example -America, Asia, Africa, Oceania)

Addition of 100 points for contacts with LR Jolly stations; 1LR001, 1LR004, 1LR164 & 1LR059.


26LR009 has a total of 50 points + 3 LR stations in Europe + 1 LR station in Asia + 1 LR Jolly

Score of 50 + (10 x 3) + 20 + 100 = Total 200 Points


First 3 26 Div classified with the highest points will be awarded (Div.26).

1 prize to the first LR station outside 26 Div (it means: Div.68, 108, 137, 163 & the rest of the world)

1 prize to the first not LR station

Good luck to all !!!
