Re: Grid Rules



Joe,

I've not operated as a rover station in several years now, but back when I
did, we were not allowed to claim more than one grid square at a time. These
rules may have been modified since then, but I don't think so as it would
appear to give an unfair advantage to the guy in the corner and the guy's
that work him. I never worked from a corner, but I did work from the border
of two squares and I remember that I had to choose one square and would have
to move "X units distance" from there to claim the other square. I don't
recall now either "X" or the "units distance". This was about 7 or 8 years
ago now.

You might want to post your question on one or more of the VHF, UHF,
Microvave or Weak-signal reflectors, as those guy's need to keep up with the
grid rules. They'll know the answers.
