So, how would i denote my operations from 38N0'0.00 118W0'0.00 > (DM07/08/17/18)? Can anyone help me out on this one? ARRL Rules for Contests on Bands Above 50 MHz say: "1.11.A station located precisely on a dividing line between grid squares must select only one as the location for exchange purposes. A different grid-square multiplier cannot be given without moving the complete station (including antennas) at least 100 meters." So, in the case of a grid corner, you can pick any one of the 4 grids in the corner, but you have to move the whole station to count a QSO in any of the 3 other adjoining grids. Same thing for a grid line, only 2 grids instead of 4 are involved. I seem to recall that there was an AMSAT rule that was different, allowing a QSO at an exact grid corner to count for all 4 grids, and a QSO at an exact grid line to count for both grids, but I can't seem to locate that rule to see exactly when it applies... 73 de WØJT AMSAT-NA LM#2292 _______________________________________________ Sent via AMSAT-BB@amsat.org.
