The rules have changed to incorporate 2m FM on 146.500Mhz. with the same rules as for HF.
The winning station will be announced at the April BARG meeting.
The winning station will have had to participated as a “field station” and not deriving its power from the mains! Field stations can score from any other amateur stations.
