NRAU Contests in general

The general basic rules for the NRAU Activity Contest, also named NAC, will be published here in due time. But, at present, no formal decision is known to have been made whether this webpage should contain detailed information on the NAC, or not.

The rationale behind this hesitation is that more non-NRAU sites already cover this at present. Hopefully this will be sorted out in the very near future, so stay tuned for updated information ...

In the interim, these are the scheduled bands and days (inserts will be made to the Calendar later):
