Calling: CQ EU on CW and CQ EUROPE on SSB.

 2. CONTEST PERIOD New

Every year, first Saturday in August,
from 1200 UTC to 2359 UTC.

 3. BANDS

All amateur bands from 1.8 through 28 Mhz, except WARC bands.
Operating in DX segments is not allowed!

 4. TYPE OF COMPETITION New

Single operator all band category only in six classes:

  1. CW/SSB - High power (maximum 1500 W output)
  2. CW/SSB - Low power (maximum 100 W output)
  3. CW - High power (maximum 1500 W output)
  4. CW - Low power (maximum 100 W output)
  5. SSB - High power (maximum 1500 W output)
  6. SSB - Low power (maximum 100 W output)

ONLY ONE transmitted signal is allowed at any time. CW contacts in SSB portion of the bands and SSB contacts in CW portion are not allowed. Only one operator is allowed to perform all of the operating and logging functions and only one callsign is allowed from a particular radio station. Use of DX CLUSTER, spotting nets or any other forms of alerting are not permitted.

 5. EXCHANGE

RST report (CW) or RS report (SSB), plus a two digit number, meaning the last two digits of the year of operator’s first official amateur radio license (i.e. RST 82 or RS 82 means that operator received his/her first official amateur radio license in the year 1982).

Operators operating from club stations and guest operators operating from stations owned by other amateurs, must sign a two digit number corresponding to the year of their OWN first official amateur license.

 6. MULTIPLIERS

Multipliers are different two-digit numbers, meaning the last two digits of the year of operator’s first official amateur radio license. The multiplier (XX) is counted only once per band regardless of mode.

 7. QSO POINTS

Each completed contact counts one (1) point regardless of mode.
The same station may be worked once per band and mode.

 8. SCORE

The final score is the sum of QSO points from all bands multiplied by the sum of multipliers from all bands.

 9. BAND AND MODE CHANGES

In CW and SSB categories maximum 10 band changes per full hour (i.e. 1100 - 1159 UTC) are allowed and in CW/SSB category maximum 10 band and mode changes per full hour are allowed.

(Example: 5 band + 5 mode changes, where band together with mode change counts as one change).

All contacts made after 10 band changes in particular hour will be removed from the log.

 10. NATIONAL CATEGORY

A separate list of national scores (the sum of all scores from one DXCC country), regardless of club affiliation, will be published.

 11. LOG INSTRUCTIONS

  1. All logs must include following data: time in UTC, frequency (band), mode, callsign of worked station, sent and received exchanges.

  2. Logs must be sorted in chronological order, regardless of band and mode of operation.

  3. It is strongly recommended to write exact operating frequency for each QSO in the band column.

    ONLY LOGS WITH EXACT WRITTEN FREQUENCIES WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE PLAQUES. New

  4. All competitors who use computer logging or established 200 and more QSOs are obliged to submit log in a computer file. Preferred format is Cabrillo (click here for log sample). If not Cabrillo, log must be in ASCII format and files shall be named: "callsign.LOG" and "callsign.SUM".

  5. In case of paper logs, a summary sheet including all relevant data needed to calculate final score, used power output, name, family name, address and year of operators first licence in block capitals and signed statement of compliance with rules must accompany each log.

  6. We strongly recommend submission of logs via e-mail.

 12. AWARDS

European Champions in classes I. - VI. will be awarded with plaques according to recommendation of the Paragraph 11.c. New

The Contest Committee will, upon its own judgment, award certain number of certificates in each class/category.

 13. PENALTIES

For unmarked duplicate QSOs (in case of paper log), broken calls, bad exchanges and QSOs, which do not appear in correspondent’s log, QSO points and additional one (1) QSO point for each such error will be removed.

10% or more bad contacts, or violation of contest rules shall result in dropping participant from the classification. Other reasons, like non-submission of PC files or other information requested from participant, could also lead to dropping the participant from the classification.

 14. SUPERVISION

The Organizer reserves it’s right to appoint different persons to check operation of different stations during the competition.

 15. DISQUALIFICATION

Violation of contest rules, unsportsmanlike conduct or very high percentage of unverifiable QSOs will be deemed sufficient cause for disqualification.
