Peter M0URL our sole operator in this year's CW NFD worked over 600 stations from our contesting site.
A fantastic effort which won the G3MVZ Memorial Cup, the Leading Single Operator award from the RSGB.
Well done Peter M0URL and all who supported him. Great to see the Farnborough & District Radio Society awarded a trophy by the RSGB.
