Making VHF/UHF Contests Better

Uk Amateur / Ham Radio Operator Dave Dix, G8LZE has created  petition to the RSGB to call for changes to make VHF/UHF Contesting in the UK better for everyone.

Dix’s proposed change is related to the B2 scoring system, which he suggests does not encourage new contesters who are at a disadvantage to more experienced entrants who use the old M7 scoring system.

The B2 system is in an experimental stage, and has the potential to upset new contesters as they feel they are “paying to be lab rats”.

Other concerns include complex / unnecessary “Virtual Meeting Point” System, lack of transparency and communication, lack of social media engagement and communication in general.
