Online survey – RD contest and data privacy – have your say.

The Remembrance Day Contest is THE Australian Contest.  It is held on the weekend closest to the 15th August, the date on which hostilities ceased in the southwest Pacific area. ​This is typically the second or third weekend of the month.

The International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend is a international weekend event to activate Lighthouses and is on the 3rd weekend in August.  It is a very different event to the RD Contest.  

Sometimes, these two popular events fall on the same weekend.  2019 will be one such occasion.  There have been calls to ensure these events don’t clash.​

Callbook data has been publically available for decades.  In more recent years with the advent of the internet and varying concerns over data privacy, identity theft and personal security, some foreign Administrations have restricted the public availability of this data.  Some VK Hams have also raised concerns over data privacy matters.

RASA is running a survey to gather your feedback on both of these important topics.
