New ARRL Single-Operator Unlimited Contest Category Effective with RTTY Roundup

12/24/2013

Responding to many requests, the ARRL Programs and Services Committee this year accepted the Contest Advisory Committee (CAC) recommendation to add the Single-Operator Unlimited category to the ARRL 10 Meter Contest, ARRL 160 Meter Contest, RTTY Roundup, and the IARU HF Championship.

“This particular issue has been a long time coming,” said CAC Chairman Al Dewey, K0AD.

The new category permits the use of spotting information within the Single-Operator class. The RTTY Roundup January 4-5, 2014, will be the first event to which this new category applies. In the past, using spotting information placed a station in the Multioperator category. Per the revised rules, “Single-Operator Unlimited: The use of spotting assistance or automated, multi-channel decoders is permitted.”
