Re: Grid Rules

okay, enough...here are the rules, read into them anything you like as long as you 
abide by them....


Stations who claim to operate from more than one grid locator simultaneously (such as from the 
intersection of 4 grid locators) must be physically present in more than one locator to give 
multiple locator credit with a single contact. This requires the operator to know precisely where 
the intersection lines are located and placing the station exactly on the boundary to meet this 
test. To achieve this precision work requires either current markers permanently in place, or the 
precision work of a professional surveyor. Operators of such stations should be prepared to 
provide some evidence of meeting this test if called upon to do so. Multiple QSL cards are not 
required. GPS readings are acceptable.
