About the Northern Lights Radio Society...
Over the years several local and regional radio organizations have become especially connected to the August UHF Contest. Certainly one the highest-profile groups has been the Northern Lights Radio Society, based in Minnesota's Twin Cities. The group sponsors Rovermania, a special operating event for rovers that is held during the August UHF contest each year. Another is a special award for limited (three-band) rovers. In 2016 NLRS will again sponsor Rovermania and present the limited rover award, which is open to everyone in the contest, not just NLRS members.
Here's what Jon Platt, W0ZQ, sent along about the limited rover award:
Here is the link to the NLRS Limited Rover Award page. Note that it's the national top rover score using three bands. I scan the posted R, RL, and RU to find that.
From that page, there is a sub page at the bottom that lists previous year winners. Our Aurora conference is next month where we will be announcing the 2015 winners. Here is the list:
