There are two IRTS (Irish Radio Transmitters Society) contests coming up over the next few weeks.
Firstly, the Two Metres Counties Contest will take place on Sunday 30th August 2015, followed by the SSB Field Day the following weekend, Saturday and Sunday 5th & 6th September 2015.
The Two Metres Counties Contest is always a popular event, with plenty of activity from fixed and portable locations; the contest provides a good opportunity to activate or work summits for the Summits On The Air programme.
There is a new Restricted / 6 hour section in SSB Field Day, which the IRTS hope will attract individuals or groups who may not be interested in an overnight operation.
Note that pre-registration is required for the 24 Hour Open and Restricted sections, but not for the new 6 hour section.
