Christmas 2021 Repeater Contest and Activity Challenge

Post by G3GJA » Sun Dec 12, 2021 6:29 pm

The Christmas Repeater Contest 2021 will run from Friday 24th December 2021 through to Monday 3rd January 2022 inclusive. The aim is to increase ATV repeater use. On offer is a £100 prize for the repeater group with the most contacts recorded.

The on-line entry and ladder system on the BATC website will be used as in previous years. The Ladder has fields for you to enter the points claimed and the repeater's callsign.

As well as the Repeater Challenge, please enter any non-repeater contacts you make so that the Contest becomes an Activity Ladder Challenge too. There are no prizes for the winner of the Activity Ladder Challenge but the first and second places will receive a certificate and your name and callsign will appear in CQ-TV with attached bragging rights, kudos etc.! Many repeater groups have found that their income has been slashed by the pandemic precautions, so here’s a chance to help your local repeater group and stir up some activity.

The rules are available in PDF form here: https://wiki.batc.org.uk/File:Christmas ... _RULES.pdf. Note the rules in the pdf document are the master version. The wiki text may have been changed for clarification.

Please note that the rules have changed from last year; this year multi-band contacts with the same station at the same location on any one day are not permitted. However, if they are from different locations, i.e., one least significant QTH locator square different in a six character locator, the contact is valid.

Hi All,

The on-line entry and ladder system is now live for the Christmas 2021 Repeater Contest and Activity Challenge.

Sign up here: https://batc.org.uk/contests/xmas-ladder/

Note that as the user data is held only for each set of contests individually, you'll need to register a new user for this set even if you've participated before.

Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Phil M0DNY
