Contest General Rules proposals

The starting point for this consensus-forming consultations is the following document:

The consultation is open to all RSGB members.

The consultation commenced on 10 August 2012 and will close at 23.59 BST on 16 September 2012.

A similar process to our other Litmus Tests will be adopted whereby the discussion will be facilitated by moderators Ian Pawson, G0FCT and Don Field, G3XTT who additionally have the task of calling the consensus view a week or so before the end of the period.

These last two weeks are for any final comments.
