|Special Rules for this Contest|
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 / 2.3 GHz on the 3rd Tuesday, 50 MHz on the 4th Tuesday, and 70 MHz where there is a 5th Tuesday in the month.
Please submit an entry after each session in which you are active. In order to speed adjudication entries will only be accepted by e-mail or web entry and must be sent within 10 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)
At the end of the year, on each band an overall score will be calculated from the best 8 normalised session scores.
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.
a. The individual entries by a club's members to the UK activity contests which take place on from 2000-2230 LOCAL time on each Tuesday in every month all count towards a society's overall score for the year for each UKAC. To maximise the club score, it's important for the club contest organiser to get as many members to come on for as many sessions as possible. A rolling club listing will be maintained on the Contest Committee web site www.rsgbcc.org/vhf for each band.
b. Stations enter the UKAC contests in the normal way, but need to include an AFS (affiliated society) name in the cover sheet of their entry. Entries to all sections of the UKAC count towards the overall club score which is the simple sum of the normalised scores of each team member operating that month.
c. Stations who enter on behalf of an affiliated society must be members of the affiliated society, but not necessarily RSGB members themselves.
d. The G6NB Trophy will be awarded to the club with the highest score in the 2m UKAC at the end of the year. All 12 sessions will count towards the total club score.
