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.
