As received from RSGB President:
As a Commonwealth member of IARU I thought you would be interested in seeing the letter I have just received from our Patron HRH Duke of Edinburgh.
In it HRH refers to this year’s Commonwealth Contest which takes place on March 11/12 2017. Perhaps you would be kind enough to encourage some of your fellow Commonwealth amateurs to participate.
There are some very fine prizes to be won by entrants and details can be found at the webpage https://berucontest.wordpress.com/80th-commonwealth-contest-news/
The contest runs from 10:00UTC on 11 March 2017 until 10:00UTC 12 March 2017. It is CW only on 80,40,20,15,10m bands. Contacts can be made with any station in the RSGB Commonwealth Call Area List (http://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/information/codes.shtml) except stations in the entrants own call area. Please read the full rules at http://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/rules/2017/beru2017.shtml
Full details and breaking news can be found at https://berucontest.wordpress.com/news . You are encouraged to keep a close watch on any news, especially DXpeditions.
