Brimham Contest Group
Hello and welcome to the Internet home of Brimham Contest Group, located near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom, we are a keen group  of like minded individuals interested in the pursuit of Ham Radio contesting.
We are active during most major HF contests covering CW, SSB and the data modes, and even some of the smaller contests as attractive as they are! Dependant on the contest, we will use one of our callsigns: G6MC, M0IPX and occasionally G2YL
We are not a public club, more a group of friends with a common interest. We are always on the look-out for new colleagues, so if you would like to know more, please get in touch!
What is Ham Radio Contesting?
So the aim if the game is to try and contact as many other ham radio stations around the worlld within a given time period - easy eh?. Well throw in the fact that hundreds of others are trying to do the same, that winning is achived often through strategic accumulation of points and multipliers and then the vaguries of radio propogation to take into account and it starts to get tough!
Some of the largest stations in the world will be using hugh antenna arrays, multiple station configurations and lots of skilled operators. We still aspire to such a configuration, though we do believe we are one of the top contest groups in the UK.
