RSGB UKAC Scoring Consultation 2018

A message from the RSGB…….

This is your opportunity to cast your vote on which of the two scoring systems outlined in the Consultation on UKAC Scoring Schemes 2017 will be used in the UKAC contests from 6m though to 23cm for 2018.

Online voting on this consultation will open on 28 July and continue until 2359 BST on 20 August.

Those eligible to vote are current RSGB members who have taken part in an RSGB VHF/UHF/SHF contest in the past five years either as single operators, or as members of a multi-operator entry, as verified against the Contest Committee database. If you have changed your callsign since entering your last VHF Contest, please include both your old and new callsigns.

There will be a further consultation to follow later covering other aspects of VHF/UHF/SHF contesting.

We look forward to hearing your views.


Andy Cook, G4PIQ
Chair, RSGB VHF Contest Committee

WAB Squares.

I have had a request from Dave, G4SQA, who does WAB. He needs the following squares:

SC28 – Peel area, SC36 – the tiny one up from the airport, and NX30, just north of Jurby.

Is anyone, or the club interested in activating these squares? It would be a good activity for the club. I’ll put my name forward, who’s next?

Eary Cushlin

I have just read the article in Manx Tails about the refurbishment to Eary Cushlin.

At £1500 a week, I think we will not be visiting there as a club again!

Looks nice though……..
