VK-trans/Tasman contest - Important Correction

Date : 21 / 03 / 2012

The dates for the VK/trans-Tasman contest broadcast recently in the WIA news were incorrect.

The VK-trans/Tasman contest will run this year as two contest:

  The 80m Phone contest on 12 May, and
  The 80m and 160m Combined contest on 21 July.

The Combined contest includes categories for:

  160m phone,
  80m CW,
  CW on both bands,
  Digital modes on both bands, and
  various combinations of these, including
  an overall category for both bands and all modes except 80m phone.

Rules can be found on the VK/Trans-Tasman contest page on the WIA website, located in "Contests" under the "Members Area" pulldown menu, or click the following Link This is now the primary website for both of the 2012 contests.

The ever popular 80m phone contest remains much the same, with the most significant changes being a simplification of the group bonus rule, where groups can now be made from any SIX call areas of VK and ZL combined. See the rules for details.

Combining 160m phone and the two CW and digital contests on the one night should provide plenty of activity for all interests, and allow clubs to set up multi-multi stations for that big effort!
