Given a bit of thought to the various uWave
contests for next year, as requested by John
So, flying a kite, I wonder what active
microwave users think of making each session
only a 2 band pairing? More manageable for
portables and some of us at home too.
Also reduce from 5 to 3 sessions per band (best
2 to decide championship over the season). Many
have commented there have been too many contests
in recent years - but there would be just 11
Sundays/weekends in this scheme (excluding RSGB
events). Also Winter months (Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb)
would have none (except RSGB UKAC evenings).
Gives more even date spacing per band than this
year. Roving rule only to apply to 10 & 24G.
(ie drop 5.7G - no one roves on 6cm).
All other aspects continue as this year (i.e.
Hours of operating, Certificates and Sections,
Scoring etc). Almost identical Sundays/weekends
to 2013, which also fit in with the RSGB uWave
events which are scheduled to remain the same in
MARCH 16th - 1.3, 2.3G

AUGUST 3rd - uWave Field Day 1.3, 10G (plus
another band option?)

Perhaps different pairings - eg 23/9cm, 13/6cm,
