Předmět: [Moon] 2007 ARRL EME Contest Rules

Dear EME and Contesting Friends,

On behalf of the ARRL's VHF/UHF Advisory Committee (VUAC), I write to let you know that dates and rules for the 2007 ARRL International EME Competition
have been posted on the League's web site, http://www.arrl.org/contests/rules/2007/eme.html.

A number of rules changes take effect with the 2007 EME Contest.

The most important ones are these:

Separate award categories are provided for Analog, Digital, and Mixed-Mode entries on the 50-1296 MHz bands. No mode distinctions are made on bands at
2.3 GHz and higher.

All active or passive use of spotting aids (loggers, DX Clusters, ...) is forbidden, with the following specific exceptions:

On the 50, 222, and 902 MHz bands, and all bands at 2.3 GHz and above, it is permissible for any station to make real-time schedules, self-spot CQs,
or otherwise coordinate activities by non-EME means. Non-EME liaison of any kind is forbidden during a QSO, however.

On the 144, 432, and 1296 MHz bands separate "Assisted" award categories are offered for Single-Operator and Multi-Operator single-band entries, Mixed
Mode only. These categories allow the same forms of liaison permitted on the three low-activity bands and the microwave bands. They are intended to
encourage smaller stations and operators new to EME.

The dates for the 2007 contest are:

September 29-30 -- 2304 MHz and Up
October 27-28 -- 50 MHz through 1296 MHz
November 24-25 -- 50 MHz through 1296 MHz
