Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I’m seeking sponsorship for my entry in this year’s CQ WW CW (Morse Code) amateur radio contest. This event takes place for 48 hours during the weekend of 28 – 29 November.  The object is to establish two-way contact with as many stations throughout the world as possible on six frequency bands. I’ll be taking part from my home in , where I made over 2000 contacts in the same event last year.

All money raised will go to the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

This year, with conditions still in the Doldrums, but with an improved station, I’m looking to put in my best ever effort!

Sponsors can donate a fixed amount or sponsor me per contact. To add a bit of fun, sponsors are invited to guess my final score – the closest guess will win a copy of “Catnav”, the latest CD from the British Computer Association of the Blind (BCAB). You’re also invited to take up Terry’s Million challenge, by offering a bigger donation if I break the million point barrier for the first time!

The scoring for this event is quite complex. Contacts within score 1 point, whilst those to other continents score 3. Apart from being divided into countries, the world is divided into 40 zones and it’s possible to contact each country and zone on each of the six bands. The final score is the number of points accrued through contacts, multiplied by the number of countries and zones contacted on all bands. Last year, I claimed just over 900,000 points for my 2200 contacts.

Please support RNIB through this exciting project. Those wishing to sponsor me per contact, take up Terry’s Million Challenge, or guess my claimed score should contact me at terry@describe-online.com before 00:00 on 28 November 2009.

Many thanks for your support.
