RSGB Contest Special Rules 2013
These contests are timed to co-incide with the last two hours of a number of European activity contests, with an extra half hour at the end to encourage intra UK activity. They take place on Tuesdays from 2000-2230 local time with 144 MHz on the 1st Tuesday of the month, 432 MHz on the 2nd Tuesday, 1.3 GHz on the 3rd Tuesday, 50 MHz and 13cms to 3cms on the 4th Tuesday, and 70 MHz where there is a 5th Tuesday in the month.
A UK station is required to be at one or both ends of a QSO for it to be valid.
Please submit an entry after each session in which you are active. In order to speed adjudication entries must be sent within 7 days of the contest.
Scores will be normalised for each section in each session as follows.
Score for each section/session = ((number of entrants+1)-(position of entrant))*1000/(number of entrants)
The maximum number of sessions that will count towards the final individual scores will be FOUR less than the number of sessions held during the year on 2m, 70cm and 23cm, THREE less on 6m and SHF, and ONE less on 4m. Only the lowest scoring entries are discarded.
Note that ALL sessions count towards you club score.
It is impossible for you to determine your best sessions without knowing everyone else's scores, so please submit your logs and scores from all sessions in which you were active and allow the adjudicator to calculate your best sessions.
Stations may change section and move location between individual activity periods.
Certificates will be awarded to the overall winners and runners-up in each section and on each band in the same way as per the general rules. No certificates will be awarded for the individual events.
