The call M2Z can only be used by members of the SDRS who hold an A class licence or a B class under supervision. A separate log book must be kept and returned to me as soon as possible after each period of use. If the log book is an electronic one then I will need a copy of the software. Also, in order that I have time to comply with the licence requirements to notify the RIS, I must be notified in writing (e-mail is OK) at least 14 days before the call is used, giving details of the contest and the National Grid Reference (NGR) of the QTH that will be used during the contest.
Also; please let me know who the QSL manager is for the event.
Geoff Watts, G0EVW – 15/03/02 firstname.lastname@example.org G3SDS/M2Z licence holder for SDRS.
