VK Shires Contest

VK SHIRES 10th June 2023

Contest Manager

Diane Main VK4DI VKCL Shires log submission to vklogchecker. Please be aware that version 4.15 of VKCL may output cabrillo with two spaces in front of the "QSO:" line. Not sure why, but with spaces before this line, the log will be rejected and you will receive an email to that effect. Two fixes.. 1. Manually remove the spaces yourself, or 2. On receiving the rejection email, copy and past the returned log into the submission window, and submit again. IF all else fails, attach the log and email to the manager.

Contest Introduction

Held the Saturday and Sunday of the weekend prior to the second Monday of June every year. Starts: 00.00 UTC Saturday Ends: 23.59 UTC VK Stations work VK Shires and CQ Zones whereas international stations only work VK Shires Operation on the 160m band has been added and there is a new start time, but the major change is that reworking stations is now allowed in 4-hour blocks. The rules for the blocks are, however, somewhat different to what is in John Moyle Memorial Field Day or VHF-UHF Field Day use, so read the rules carefully.

Aim Of The Contest

The objectives of this contest are for amateurs around the world to contact as many VK shires as possible in the contest period. VK amateurs are to work the world including VK, whilst the rest of the world can only work VK.
