From Richard VK2BO –

This year we had a good showing in the VK Shires contest with 60 logs being submitted, this is a sizable increase on last year.

There is the absence of the “Rover” section this year and there is some confusion in the fact that to be a roving station you have to activate a minimum of 2 shires to be eligible.

The objectives of this contest are for amateurs around the world to contact as many VK shires as possible in the contest period.

VK amateurs are to work the world including VK, whilst the rest of the world can only work VK.
