Great to work you for the first time last week Steve but 3Cm might be tough, you were only 57 on 23. 

Lets hope for some rain in the right place (not over me though)

cheers, Ben

John and all

I'm planning to be QRV for this session on 23, 13 and 9cms, and also for the 10GHz Trophy which is partly concurrent. I think there's a good chance of spreading my capability too thinly and having mediocre results on all bands ! Anyway .............

I will be active, but will logs that don’t start at 001 be accepted?

I planning on doing the 24hr RSGB contest as well, so it is going to be difficult and confusing for logging. Depending on the answer I guess I might have to rethink what bands I operate on and when for the RSGB contest.

Where there is a concurrent event such as the RSGB contest that starts before the UKuG contest, serial numbers do not have to start at 001.

Please make sure that your 'KST login shows < Correctly > the bands you are QRV on for the contest. It would save a lot of messages and confusion on the day !
