2015-09-19 Radiocontesting can be simple and fun
I mentioned serious radiocontesting before where people invest serious time and money into getting the best scores. There is also a more laid-back approach of participating for a few hours in a radiocontest and just going for the fun. And maybe having a contact with a new country.

The Essex Hams did just that: they participated in the RSGB SSB Field Day and enjoyed themselves without breaking any records in scores, read the full report at RSGB SSB Field Day – Shoebury 2015 - Essex Ham. A nice article, and the main conclusion is that they had fun with amateur radio.

Found via Essex Hams try Contesting - Southgate Amateur Radio News.
