The Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) organise a number of contests each year. These include a number of Field Days where stations must use temporary antennas and are not allowed to use mains power.
By 1998, the RSGB had introduced different sections to the field day contests. Whilst some groups go for high power, large aerials and multiple receivers we have always entered the restricted or low power section, which places restrictions on these items. In 1998, we won the 14MHz (20m) Restricted section.
Whilst National field Day is a 24 hour long contest, Low Power Field Day takes place over two three hour long periods separated by a lunch break. It also has a much lower power limit (of 10 watts) compared to the higher powers that are available to NFD stations.
