C4HQ Team achieves goals!

Team C4HQ is very happy to announce they have achieved their goal of 16000 QSO’s during the 2015 IARU HF Championship. The team considers this a major achievement given the average propagation conditions. Taking into consideration duplicate calls, the final tally rose to 15563 QSO’s, and 38,100,167 points, shattering last year’s record of 34 million. Assuming other participants did not do as well, this may well constitute a new all time record!

The results in detail:

A fantastic job from the whole team!

The C4HQ Team effort had not gone unnoticed from the local news media. Coverage of the participation to the 2015 IARU HF Championship was performed by two TV channels on their prime time evening news program, and a Radio channel on a prime time radio chat show. All three channels offer island wide coverage. The segments aired are available from the links below. They are currently in Greek, however English captions will be added shortly.
