2005 Remembrance Day Contest Results

Date : 19 / 07 / 2006
Author : Michael Owen - VK3KI

The WIA Board very much regrets to announce that it has become necessary to abandon any further attempts to determine the outcome of the 2005 Remembrance Day Contest.

The results already announced are withdrawn and no certificates will be issued for the 2005 Contest.

The then RD Contest Manager did not complete the results and data has been lost.

The new RD Contest Manager, Peter Harding VK4OD, has tried very hard to recover the situation. However, it is now clear that the amount of data lost makes it impossible to reconstruct the contest sufficiently for the Board to have confidence in any results and the fairness of those results.

The Board is acutely conscious of the fact that the RD Contest is the most supported of all the Australian contests and holds a very special position in the eyes of very many amateurs, and so has taken the step that it has with the greatest reluctance.

Changes to this years contest include ensuring that contest logs submitted electronically will be on a secure site and available to the RD Contest Manager, Peter Harding VK4OD, the National Contests Coordinator Ian Godsil VK3JS and Trevor Quick VK5ATQ, the WIA Director responsible for contests and awards.

The WIA Board offers its sincere apologies to the many who participated in the 2005 Contest and hopes that all amateurs will again support the 2006 Contest.
