RSGB Contest Special Rules 2024

a. The individual entries by a club's members to the FM activity contests, all count towards a society's overall score for an FMAC championship. 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.

b. Club members must either operate within or have their home QTH (as shown on their Ofcom validation document) within a circle of radius 80km from their Club's Virtual Meeting Place to have their score count towards the club score. However, members may be based outside the 80km radius if there are no other AFS within that 80km. Stations must state their UK&CD Postcode or UK&CD QTH locator of their home QTH when entering their log. There is no distance restriction on where their station is operated.

c. Stations enter the FMAC contests in the normal way, and can optionally choose an AFS (affiliated society) name when uploading their log. Entries to all sections of the FMAC count towards the overall club score which is the simple sum of the normalised scores of each team member operating that month.

d. Stations who enter on behalf of an affiliated society must be members of the affiliated society, but not necessarily RSGB members themselves.

e. The maximum number of sessions that will count towards the final individual scores will be EIGHT. Only the lowest scoring entries are discarded.

f. All sessions will count towards the total club score.

g. All clubs taking part must be Affiliated to the RSGB.
