During the CQ WW DX VHF Contest, that will take place from 18.00 UTC of July 21st until 21.00 UTC of July 22nd, the Thai hams will be autorized to use 6m band.



NBTC says six metres to be open to all soon
Thailand's National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) Secretariat has approved a RAST request that use of the 50-MHz (six metre) band be permitted during the CQ World Wide VHF contest on the weekend of July 21-22, 2012.
The permission is for the RAST club station HS0AC and for other amateur radio associations' monitoring stations in the provinces.
RAST had also sought permission from the NBTC for Intermediate Class operators to use their home stations on this band and later sought a clarification about this from the NBTC.
The NBTC responded by saying: "Intermediate class stations are not yet authorised to use the 50 MHz band." But they added: "permission to operate in this band will be granted in the near future."
The NBTC states that everyone using the 50-MHz band during the contest must closely comply with the amateur radio regulations of 2550 (2007) and operators must submit a log book of their contacts to the CQWW VHF contest committee for Thailand for submission to the Office of the NBTC.
To meet this request, every station operating on six metres during the CQWW VHF contest should send an electronic version of their contest log to Champ, E21EIC, at e21eic(AT)gmail(DOT)com.
The CQ World Wide VHF Contest takes place from 18.00 UTC on Saturday July 21 and continues until 21.00 UTC on Sunday July 22, 2012 (1.00 a.m. local time on Sunday July 22 to 4 a.m. on Monday July 23 local time) and more details may be found on the official CQWW VHF web site by following the link above.
