Pirate Hunt 2019 diploma
I've received a diploma from the organisers of the Pirate Hunt 2019 for taking part in this year's contest. The event was held at Easter and challenged DXers to log as many pirate stations over a 48 hour period.
Ten competitors from four different countries took part in the competition. The club decided not to publish the results as it was felt listeners who used multiple SDR receivers in different countries would have an unfair advantage from those listening on their home receivers. The names are in random order:
Ismo Kauppi, Lohja, Finland.
UK DXer Paul, Swindon, England.
Rick Random, Raisio, Finland.
Janne Heinikangas, Jyväskylä, Finland.
Staffan Crona, Sweden.
Lennart Weirell, Västerås, Sweden.
Kari Helopaltio, Nurmijärvi, Finland.
Jouni Kilpinen, Helsinki, Finland.
Patrick Robic, Leibnitz, Austria.
Kari Kallio, Lahti, Finland.
They say they won't be holding one next year. Many thanks to the organisers for arranging the Pirate Hunt 2019.
