|The Three As Contest Group [G0AAA] continued their round Great Britain tour for NFD by operating for a second time as GU0AAA/p from near Fort Doyle on Guernsey.
The previous operation from this same location was for NFD in June 2002.
The 1,152 QSOs made in June 2005 was a slight improvement over the 2002 total of 1,121 QSOs.
