Have you worked me under GO0VQY yet?

We are a week into the Olympics now and I have already notched up over 400 contacts using the G0 special call.  I haven't spent an awful lot of time on the radio and I had nearly a week off because family was staying with me.  However, I have been on most days since Sunday and have had a ball of the time.  It seems that the special Olympic call is still quite popular, even though there are quite a lot of UK radio amateurs using it.  You normally get a pretty big pileup when you get going so any weak stations or DX will probably have a hard time getting heard.  I do try and listen in between the big stations for any weaker stations but you know what its like when everyone is calling all at the same time and you can't hear anything.

Anyway, I have been hanging out on 20 m most days so listen out for me
