Just testing the water and wondering how many members would be up for a CT run 10m dxcc summer challenge ?
This would start on the 1st April and members would post up their dxccc contacts , gaining 1point for every new dxcc worked , I would then keep a updated table here on the CT forum , no Facebook or club log needed
Names so far
Me and Al would be great if a few more could join in

Having run the "10m SSB Summer Challenge" myself since 2017 as you both well know I would have thought you could at least have thought up your own name . Good luck as anything that creates activity on TEN is a bonus , just watch out for those that cheat LOL.

10m uk net has gone to pot since you left Kev, no one keeping score, and the cheats, lol, if you check clublog there's 17 started already with leader on 34! Take some catching lol. After a long chat with Iain and Ian it seems its every man for himself and no new members unless they are on FB Was time to start again, you in Kev?
I expect some of you know the group I’m referring to, far too serious for me, that’s why I now spend most of my time back on 11 where the vast majority of operators aren’t stuck up their own arseholes! Yes, count me in please Craig, but apologies in advance if I forget to update now & again, my competitive operating days in pileups etc are left back in the 1980s!
Nice on John and great to have you onboard , I will probably update the table every Sunday evening , will also start a thread where you can post the contacts , all I ask with every post is to include your own personal running total ( will save me a bit of work )
I got my G0 ticket in November ’85, after about five years as a 11 metre pirate, and was lucky enough to get my DXCC in February ‘88. I had a Trio 530SP and a HQ-1 mini beam! Was very active for around 10 years, but then due mainly to lack of time sold up in the mid 90s.
I started SWL/MW DXing again when I retired in 2016, bought a ICOM 703 just over two years ago with the intention of enjoying QRP SSB, then realised most activity seemed to be on digimodes! Fortunately the 703 had been widebanded so six months later I was back to my pirate roots on freeband! I still enjoy 28Mhz when it’s open, but most of my radio time is spent SWL/MW DXing along with some 11metre hill-topping when we’re not locked down!

And this is why I desperately need a hf rig as I'm missing all of then! I really wish I could join in but trying to find a reasonably used hf radio is like hens teeth, but I am always on the look out so if I get hold of one before April then I'll let you know and you can count me in.
