Oceania Dx Contest Committee Forwarded 08/05/2018

Please add your weight to the move.

Dear Sirs,

I wish to ask that you consider a change to the start time of the Oceania Dx Contest to align with 00:00 UTC 24:00 UTC

With many ops looking to remote locations away from City noise the end time on Sunday means either dismantling in the dark or waiting until Monday AM.

Even worse in ZL or the Eastern Pacific.

For those on the western edge of Oceania it would mean a finish around 7am local and for those on the Eastern edge it would mean around 2pm local for Hawaii.

Regards
