Lockdown VHF NFD rules announced

| June 12, 2020

VHF NFD is the next big event on the RSGB contest calendar, scheduled for 4 and 5 July 2020.

It can’t be run in its normal multi-operator format, so the RSGB Contest Committee has designed an interesting alternative for single operator stations.

The rules have been set for fixed stations only.

If within two weeks of the event the Government guidance changes sufficiently, the rules to allow portable operation may be changed.

The format of the Lockdown VHF NFD is a five-band, club-based event, loosely based around the AFS rules and UK Activity Contest sections.

Each band has its own two or three hour operating slot during the weekend, with time between them to allow for equipment changes to take place.
