In the world of Radiosport we compete against all comers world wide – but never is it a level playing field when the Australian Authorities (ACMA) insist on keeping the approved power down on the old UK 400 Watt level.
Talk about not letting go of the apron strings of Mother England.
Even the UK are able to introduce a contester class to allocate a special callsign for contests – but does ACMA ?
No they actually discourage the issuing of callsigns for competitive advantage – What Nanny state rubbish is this ?
If it was up to the powers that be in ACMA, if they ran the Football codes we will stop awarding medals and giving all Football teams participation certificates for Pete’s sake.
