BERU 2017 rules have now been published at http://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/rules/2017/beru2017.shtml
Note the reduced submission time (5 days), the need to advise HFCC of any proposed remote operation and the extra HQ stations from the UK country call areas. There is now an additional penalty for logging errors!
I now hope to visit the mountain-side contest site of Norman 5B4AIE next year, allong with the long suffering xyl.The section choice is still to be decided.Maybe too far for the HF bands? Mike G3VYI
Just a quick note to say thanks for all your efforts in arranging the Commonwealth Medal to be presented to Phil Holliday at the CDXC event.
He got quite a shock when he was called up and it really made his day.

At the Dayton Hamvention, Radio Amateurs of Canada announced that it has secured permission for all Canadian Radio Amateurs to use special call sign prefixes to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation.
National, regional and local events will take place throughout 2017 to celebrate the anniversary and Canadian Amateurs will let their counterparts around the world know of our celebration by using the following special prefixes:
- Amateurs and clubs whose regular call signs start with VA will be able to use the CF prefix instead of VA (for example, VA3RAC will be authorized to use the CF3RAC call sign).
- Amateurs and clubs whose regular call signs start with VE will be able to use the CG prefix instead of VE (e.g., VE4RAC will be authorized to use CG4RAC).
- Amateurs and clubs whose regular call signs start with VO will be able to use the CH prefix instead of VO (e.g., VO1RAC will be authorized to use CH1RAC).
- Amateurs and clubs whose regular call signs start with VY will be able to use the CI prefix instead of VY (e.g., VY2RAC will be authorized to use CI2RAC).
These special prefixes are optional and Amateurs can choose if and when to use the special prefix vs their normal prefix at any time during the year. Stay tuned to the RAC website for additional information
