Our own Gil Thompson, KM4OZH, came in second as a Limited Rover in our Roanoke division. The Roanoke division consists of the states of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. In addition, Gil came in fifth in the Southeast Region which consists of Delta, Roanoke and Southeast Divisions of the ARRL. You can find him listed as KM4OZH/R on page 80 of the December 2019 QST.
A Limited Rover is limited to the lowest four bands – 6M, 2M , 220 and 440. In addition, a Limited Rover has the same power limits as the single operator low power category: 200 watts on 6M and 2M and 100 watts on 220 and 440.
Gil also operated in the September VHF contest and expects to place high in that contest also. He is adding 2M SSB capability to boost his score for the next contest.
We are all proud of Gil’s accomplishments.
