MKARS are currently back to 13th in the UKAC weekly VHF/UHF Tuesday nights contests with 104 other clubs and groups and 606 individuals taking part.
Even though we are back at 13th we would welcome more members who would be willing to join the regulars to gain MKARS more points in what is the most popular radio event of any week. Dates can be found in the diary and full details in the VHF pages of the RSGB web site, or just ask any of the regular Contesters, myself included, G1MZD.
