Sections
UKAC Open
(AO)

The power output must be greater than 100W PEP (40W on 4m) and not more than 400W PEP (160W on 4m) at the final output stage or external amplifier connection to the antenna.
No antenna restrictions.
(If a stacked or bayed antenna system is used, the minimum power requirement is waived)
UKAC Restricted
(AR)

The power output must be greater than 10W PEP (4W on 4m) and not more than 100W PEP (40W on 4m) at the final output stage or external amplifier connection to the antenna.
Only one antenna may be used at any one time. If you do not use a rotatable antenna then you may switch between multiple fixed direction antennas (any combination of directional and omni-directional antennas). Switching between a rotatable antenna and any other antenna is not allowed. Stacked or bayed antenna arrays may not be used, but you may use a co-linear vertically polarised antenna.
UKAC Low Power
(AL)

The power output must not exceed 10W PEP at the final output stage or external amplifier connection to the antenna, except on 4m where output power is restricted to 4W.
Only one antenna may be used at any one time. If you do not use a rotatable antenna then you may switch between multiple fixed direction antennas (any combination of directional and omni-directional antennas). Switching between a rotatable antenna and any other antenna is not allowed. Stacked or bayed antenna arrays may not be used, but you may use a co-linear vertically polarised antenna.
UKAC DXers
(AX)

Maximum output power as permitted by standard licence conditions.
No antenna restrictions.
Active use of the DX cluster and chat channels such as ON4KST is allowed, so long as no information that forms part of the contest exchange is passed via these means.
Scores in this section will not count towards a club score (S9)

Special Rules for this Contest
S8
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 (due to Primary user restrictions, the 13cm event timings differ), 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.
S9
a. The individual entries by a club's members to the UK activity contests which take place 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/results for each band.

b. Stations enter the UKAC contests in the normal way, but need to choose an AFS (affiliated society) name when uploading their log. 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. All sessions will count towards the total club score.
