Responce to the recent post on contest rule changes.

Thanks for the email. The General Rules relating to RSGB contests define "UK" as including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, even though we are aware that they are in fact outside the UK. The RSGB represents amateurs in those islands as well as those in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, so can be said to include anyone whose prefix starts with G, M or 2.

I hope this puts your mind at rest.
