Hi Denny, sorry for the delay I have just got back from working away for a couple of days. The declaration is straightforward. Just a short sentence along the lines of " I declare that I have operated in accordance with both the contest rules and the licence conditions in my country. I accept that the decision of the judges will be final." I'm not a data man so I'm glad Dave jumped in above gl in the contest, Trev

I have just been reading the rules again and I have a query regarding the rule that says:

All contest QSO's must be outside the DX Window 50.100-50.130 MHz.

Does this really mean exactly what it says ? or will it be permitted to make a Contest Exchange with a DX station (i.e. in a different Continent) in this portion of the band ?

Hi Stewart, I'm afraid it means exactly what it says. I can see where you are coming from with this query, but there is no real alternative to ensure that the DX window is not encroached with contest stations. the rules would become overly complex if we tried to differentiate between calling a DX station for a contest QSO and calling for contest QSOs in the DX portion of the band. Having said all of this, there is no problem with a station temporarily 'dropping out of the contest' to work a DX station although any QSO within that section must not include a contest exchange and must not be included in the contest log. I hope this helps, 73, Trev

Folks,

If you used N1MM (V11.6.0) for your logging then you might want to be aware that the Contest Scoring does not seem to be dealing with the Locators as I expected - it seems to be counting each 6 Digit Locator as a Multiplier not the first 4 Digits. (It says we worked just 20 less Grids than we had QSO's)

Is this what is expected ? (the rules seem a bit vague).

Hi Stewart, I'm not sure if I fully understand your comment but if it helps, the rules state: "Exchange will be RST, Serial number, Full Locator (6 figure eg IO81WX) and Membership Number if available (compulsory if a member, or if one of a multi operator station is a member). I'm not sure what is vague about it.

Trev,

I believe that all the other VHF Contests I have entered (as an Individual) use only the first 4 Characters of the Locator as part of the Multiplier Scoring (Even though 6 Characters are required to Calculate the Distance Component).

In this case it seems to me that the rules are not clear as to if it is the 4 Character values that should be used or the 6 Character ones.
