I am amazed how many people re-interpret this detail...toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It does not say “without” or “no” abbreviations or acronyms.
The quote directly from the FAQ says:
"all club participants must enter the club’s official name exactly the same, avoiding abbreviations or acronyms.”
Podunk Amateur Radio Club and Timbuktu Amateur Radio Club
- or -
Podunk ARC and Timbuktu ARC
The only unique part of the names is “Podunk” and “Timbuktu”. Therefore, it makes no sense not to use an acronym in the common part of the name. In fact, abbreviating “Amateur Radio Club” using ARC greatly reduces the chance of a spelling error (think of how many times have you seen people misspell “amateur” as “amatuer”?). It is also easier to see the difference between the two when the abbreviation for the common part is used.
