We are holding Christmas Repeater Contest again in 2020, with the aim of increasing ATV repeater use. On offer is a £100 prize for the repeater group with the most contacts recorded. The competition will run from 24th December 2020 through to Sunday 3rd January 2021 inclusive.

To make entries easier, the on-line entry and ladder system as used for the Spring Lockdown Challenge will be used on the BATC website. The Ladder has additional fields for you to enter the points claimed and the repeater's callsign.

As well as the Repeater Challenge, you are invited to enter any non-repeater contacts you make so that the Contest becomes an Activity Ladder Challenge too. There are no prizes for the winner of the Activity Ladder Challenge but the first and second places will receive a certificate and your name and callsign will appear in CQ-TV with attached bragging rights, kudos etc.!

To help you collate your contacts and calculate the points I suggest you use the contest spreadsheet here: and then transfer the data to the Ladder page.

Last year’s prize went to the Severnside Group who were grateful for the cash support. Like many repeater groups, their income has been slashed by the pandemic precautions, so here’s a chance to help your local repeater group and stir up some activity.
