National competition

The sum of best ten (10) CW scores and best ten (10) SSB scores in each country will represent each country score.
The results of the national competition will also be listed.

Message

RS(T) + serial number starting from 001 + 2 letters showing  Fylke / Lan / Province / Region, e.g. 59(9) 001 VN.
See the abbreviation list at end of rules.
Note - Use different serial numbers for CW and SSB, as they are two separate contests. Multi operator stations may use separate numbers per band

Points

Each station can be contacted once per band, both on CW and SSB.
Every correct two-way QSO with ES, JW, JX, LA, LY, OH, OH0, OJ0, OX, OY, OZ, SM, TF and YL gives 2 points.
A QSO with wrong received message gives you only 1 point.
A QSO with a station not submitting a log will not give any points unless the station is found in at least ten (10) other logs. In that case it gives 1 point

Multiplier

Each worked Fylke / Lan / Province / Region per band, per mode gives one (1) multiplier.
A QSO with a station not submitting a log will not give any multiplier,
unless the station is found in at least ten (10) other logs. The multipliers are counted separately for CW and SSB.

Final score

Score = (sum of QSO-points)  x  (sum of multipliers worked on the two bands).
Separate final scores for CW and SSB.

Logs

Logs (Cabrillo) must be submitted separately for CW and SSB within 7 days after the contest. Only electronic logs are accepted.
Please check your log for typing errors and leave ALL your QSOs in the log - including dupes. The log checking software will find the dupes and mark them with zero (0) points.
By submitting a log you agree that your log and the corresponding log checking report may be made open to the public.

Too late when switching to 40m

I received a couple of comments during the SSB part that my signal was too wide. Didn't find the reason until after the contest - had a wrong TX-filter setting :-( My sincerest apologies to the other participants for the QRM this may have caused!
