The following has been posted on the main ARRL Web Page at www.arrl.org

"ARRL Contest Advisory Committee releases white paper (Feb 2, 2006) --

The ARRL Contest Advisory Committee (CAC) has released a white paper,
"HF Contesting--Good Practices, Interpretations and Suggestions." The
document, which discusses common situations encountered during HF
contesting, results from CAC work that arose over the course of an
informal committee meeting at Dayton Hamvention. While not a
comprehensive set of "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQ), the white paper
does address many issues that periodically arise related to HF
contesting and even some that may apply to VHF/UHF contesting. The white
paper operates from an HF perspective, however, recognizing that there
are many differences between HF and VHF/UHF contest practices. ARRL
Contest Branch Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND, stresses that the white
paper's interpretations do not supersede the rules for any contest but
are intended to assist contesters by providing some interpretations and
operating suggestions based on CAC members' accumulated experience."

Later today or tomorrow there will be a link to the document from the
main ARRL Contest page.

Congratulations to the members of the ARRL Contest Advisory Committee
for their dedicated effort in putting this informative and helpful
document together!


Dan Henderson, N1ND
ARRL Contest Branch Manager
