From: RAC Headquarters Date: June 14, 2001 Subject: Changes to RAC Contests

The RAC Board recently approved the addition of a Multi-Single catagory to both the RAC Canada Day Contest and the RAC Winter Contest. The rules for both contests will be amended to reflect the new category.

The definition of the new Multi-Single category will be:

Only one transmitter and one band permitted during the same time period (defined as 10 minutes.) Exception: One and only one other band may be used during any 10-minute period, if and only if the station worked is a new multiplier. In other words the Multi-Single Transmitter class allows a second station to "hunt" for multipliers only on a separate band.

The addition of this new category is effective for this year's Canada Day Contest.

The RAC Board also approved the adoption of the following abreviations for both Contests:

Yukon VY1 abbreviation to be YU Nunavut VY0 abbreviation to be NU Northwest Territories VE8 abbreviation to be NT
