In Corona times the Contest Working Group discussed via mail if it could have been safe and fair to have Multi Operator categories for this June; the advice was that we need to comply with most of the guidelines of our countries.
Therefore this year there will be no Multi-operator categories during the 50⁄70 MHz IARU-R1 contest in June. We know that some countries are less strict than others about social distance and other restrictions. Those kinds of restrictions could be in the advantage of some multi-op stations, and this would not be fair.
We advise all Member Societies to promote this year the Single Operators to participate in this contest.
Take part in the contest next June 20th-21st.
