  • QSO made with countries outside the own one counts two points.

Each QSO with a class A station counts twice. A station is allowed to be worked only once per band.

SWL logs have to contain both callsigns and at least one report.


Each DXCC-Country counts one multiplier.

 Final Score:

QSO Points times Multipliers per Band.

The Final Score is the sum of the band results.


Non observance of the rules will lead to disqualification!

All logs must contain a declaration that the contest rules have been respected.

Send SASE or SAE plus one IRC to receive a list of the results (Be sure to add your complete postal address). The results will also be posted to the AGCW board of the Packet Radio BBS network and to the AGCW home page.

Additionally, they will be published in ’AGCW-Info’.
