CDXC LF Challenge

The Penallt Trophy, given in memory of Allan Phillips, GW0BIC, is awarded to the CDXC member who works the most DXCC entities on the 1.8, 3.5 and 7MHz bands during the month of March each year (January prior to 2005). Each DXCC entity is counted once only, regardless of how many bands or how many modes that entity is worked on. No QSL cards are required, but logs are spot-checked through Club Log matches and other electronic means. There is no minimum number of entities worked in order to qualify.

All CDXC members are encouraged to enter the competition by uploading their logs to G7VJR's Club Log and enabling the LF Challenge in their Club Log profile.  Paper submissions for entry into the LF Challenge are no longer accepted, starting with the 2013 LF Challenge.  Members are encouraged to upload logs regularly, at least once per week.  In keeping with recent rule changes in large contests, uploads need to be completed and the competition will be closed five days after the end of the Challenge period.

The Penallt Trophy and the Tindle Cup awarded to the runner-up, are very attractive silver cups and well worth winning. Salvers are awarded to the third placed station and to the highest scorer on each band.

Expanded results for each year are shown on separate web pages listed in the index.
