Post 70cm contest query
Not having a clue about VHF contest rules but I wonder if anybody could clarify whether the use of the cluster is prohibited to illicit contacts?
I think I know the answer but I just wanted to clarify in case I was looking at the usual 'ancient' information!

Cluster is is simply reporting, perfectly legitimate as is KST chat.

Sorry Rob I meant to say self-spotting during a contest!
Trying to do 3 things at once and the old brain isn't catching up with my fingers :lol:

From the rules page.


Self-spotting on the DX Cluster network is not permitted during the contest.
Acceptable Examples when using chat or any other communication methods:-
Shall we make a sked on 144.388?.
I have QRM, let.s move to 144.218 kHz and start again.
Nothing received, please try later.
Thank you for a nice QSO. Note: only after the QSO has completed on the radio.


Unacceptable Examples when using chat or any other communication methods:-
I need your serial number.
Please repeat all information.
Please confirm , , etc..

Yes, I'll speak to him. Just a momentary lapse.
Not malicious, he worked hard for his intermediate, if you get my drift.
He very enthusiastic so it needs to phrased carefully.

Cheers
