Title: 6-metre band is not authorised for CQWW VHF 2017 contest
Post by: HS0ZFZ on July 14, 2017, 08:02:04 AM
Dear member or friend of RAST, RAST regrets that it must notify members that operations in the 6-metre band (50-54 MHz) are not authorised during the CQWW VHF Contest this coming weekend.   As usual, RAST had submitted a request for its members to operate in this band during the 2017 CQWW VHF Contest to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). However RAST has since learned that owing to the fact that the NBC Board was dissolved under Article 44 of the Interim Constitution the NBTC had been unable to authorise any such operations. Thus all members are advised that they are not permitted to operate in the 6-metre (50 MHz) band during the contest (or from July 15-17) this year, or until further notice. Sincere 73,   Tony, HS0ZDX    RAST Liaison Officer and Vice President
