Dates Set For Spring VHF-UHF Field Day 2007.

Date : 01 / 09 / 2007
Author : Robert Broomhead - VK3KRB

The Spring VHF-UHF Field Day for 2007 will be held over the weekend of November 17 and 18. This is a week later than in past years. The change of dates avoids clashes with some club activities that will taking place earlier in the month.

There are two minor changes in the rules:

1. Stations may enter both the 24 hour and 8 hour sections, but only if the station actually operates for more than 8 hours.
2. Changing locations: It is not in the spirit of the contest for grid-hoppers to set up more than one station and move between them. The rules now make it clear that not only the operator but also the station must be moved when operating locations are changed.

Please note also the rule on the use of DX calling frequencies. Where possible, contest activity should focus on the recommended contest calling frequency.

Saturday and Sunday November 17 and 18, 2007.
Duration in all call areas other than VK6: 0100 UTC Saturday to 0100 UTC Sunday.
Duration in VK6 only: 0400 UTC Saturday to 0400 UTC Sunday.

The full contest details can be viewed on the VHF/UHF Field Day page under contests in teh members section of this website.
