Dear fellow RTTY contesters,
on behalf of the DL-DX RTTY CONTEST GROUP (DRCG) the following information
is posted. The DRCG has decided to give the defunct ANARTS RTTY Contest a
new home. The contest will be continued though with some changes and a
new name: DRCG Long Distance Contest short DLDC.  The ANARTS points
table and multiplier scheme stay in effect, VK bonus points are removed and
the contest will be run in three 8-hour parts on the second full weekend of
June. A new 6-hour class has been added. Existing ANARTS contest modules
may be used.
A copy of the DLDC rules follow (hoping the copy/paste does not destroy the
format too much). Full details can be found and downloaded from www.drcg.de
in a couple of days.
