Hi

If we are going to continue to use the 2320-2322MHz portion of the13cm band then it would be a really good idea to move all contests on this band to the weekend when we are not restricted to operation after dusk.

Hi
John,
How do we
feedback ideas, improvements to the SHF part of the
UKAC's for 2017 ?  
I know
that G4PIQ is issuing details of new multiplier options in
early October. I don't want to generate traffic on that
multiplier topic as we have a mechanism ahead of us to
express our views via PIQ.
What I did
want to check-in on is how we make sure we all provide
feedback on the SHF part of the UKAC's so that changes
are considered for 2017.  Do we send them to you John is
that the correct mode?

To start
the discussion, my suggestions would be:
1) Remove
the clash with 6M. This is stopping lots of GHZ inclined
folks from joining in as they are having to choose (and many
are choosing 6M not 6cm!).  I suggest we leave the 4th
Tuesday to be just 6M.
2) Move
GHZ to Thursday evenings (or Sunday evenings?) and create 2
sessions a month just for us folks.  So on 2 Thursdays in
the month (say 2nd or 4th, or 1st and 3rd) when we can focus
on GHZ and get out portable to work folks and have fun.
 - Maybe
make the first Thursday on 13cm, 9cm and 6cm- Make the
second session 10cm and above.  This would create an
evening for folks with 24GHz+ etc to play.  That would make
me build for 24GHz...
3) We need
to put a minimum power level on SAO. Today there is
widespread abuse of the current process with some folks
leaving it late on Tuesdays to put in scores in SAO with
0.6W when they should be in SAR to claim more normalised
points.  Yes this is legal under the current 2016 rules but
I'd like to see it aligned in 2017, as per VHF and UHF
UKAC's.  If you are running QRP you go in the QRP
section.

Anyone
else got some positive ideas for 2017 SHF changes?Please do
share and don't throw too many bricks back at me please,
we are all entitled to an opinion on here and I'm just
trying to help move us forward! 
:)

Regards...Pete
