Trophies & Certificates Won by the LRS GM3HAM/P Contest Group

The Lothians Radio Society is active in VHF / UHF / microwave contests, usually from an excellent site in the hills near Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries & Galloway. This site was previously used for many years by well-known VHF man Tom Douglas G3BA (formerly GM3BA -Edinburgh) - SK.

This is a compilation of the various awards and certificates won by the LRS in these contests. They are listed starting with the most recent. The website editor is anxious to trace any earlier certificates for the LRS archives.
