The IARU Region 1 ATV Contest will go ahead on the weekend of 12⁄13 June 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis not all participants will be able to reach their portable sites, and some may feel that they are at a disadvantage in only being able to operate from home due to National restrictions.
To address these concerns, as for last year, the contest will be run with 2 sections:
- Section 1 will be for participants operating from their registered home QTH. No change of operating location will be permitted during the contest for entries in this Section.
- Section 2 will be for participants operating away from their registered home QTH at any time during the contest. So, even if you operate from home on one day and a portable location on the second day, if you want to add the scores under the rover rule, you must enter Section 2
Apart from these changes, the rules are as stated in the IARU-R1 VHF Handbook V9.01. An extract can be found here.
Please use the normal entry spreadsheet https://wiki.batc.org.uk/File:ATV-contest-log-callsign-20210612.xls and remember to select the correct Section on the Summary page. Entries should be submitted to National Coordinators or firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 28 June.
