 Entrants:

Any licensed station may enter the Sprint.

European stations can work everybody;
stations outside of Europe can work only European stations.

 Categories:

Single Operator ONLY. Only ONE signal may be aired at one time.

Low Power entries (up to 100 W) will be indicated by an asterisk (*) in the listing.

 Dates:

EU SPRINT Spring:

  • CW: Second Saturday in April - Saturday, 8 April 2006
    - managed by G4BUO.

  • SSB: Third Saturday in April - Saturday, 15 April 2006
    - managed by 9A6XX.

EU SPRINT Autumn:

  • SSB: First Saturday in October - Saturday, 7 October 2006
    - managed by I2UIY.

  • CW: Second Saturday in October - Saturday, 14 October 2006
    - managed by OK2FD.

 Times:

1600 until 1959 UTC

 Bands:

20, 40 and 80 metres only.

Pilot frequencies are:

  • SSB: 14.250, 7.050, 3.730.
  •  CW: 14.040, 7.025, 3.550.

 Exchange:

All of the following data MUST BE PART OF THE EXCHANGE:

  • Your Callsign
  • The Other Station’s Callsign
  • Your serial number starting from 001 (RST not required)
  • Your name or nickname

Please note that BOTH stations MUST repeat BOTH callsigns DURING the exchange.

A valid exchange is: "OK2FD de I2UIY 118 Paolo"
while "OK2FD 118 Paolo" is NOT a valid exchange.

 Special QSY Rule:

If any station initiates a call (by sending CQ, QRZ?, etc.), he is permitted to work ONLY one station on the same frequency. He must thereafter move AT LEAST 2 (two) kHz before he may call another station or before he may solicit again (CQ, QRZ?, etc.) other calls.

 Valid Contacts:

Valid contacts are QSOs correctly logged and confirmed.

Each operator may use ONE and ONLY one name during the Sprint.

If the exchange is copied incorrectly, that operator will receive zero (0) points. In case of miscopied callsigns, both stations will receive zero (0) points for that QSO.

 Scoring:

Each valid QSO counts 1 (one) point.

The final score is the total number of QSOs.

 Awards:

Colorful certificates will be issued to the winners of each Sprint, and to the leaders in each country.

A special plaque will also be awarded for the top three scores from all four contests combined. To be eligible for this award an operator must enter at least three of the Sprints in the year.

Results will be forwarded as soon as possible to Leagues, magazines and bulletins.

A single chronological log is required. Please send us your log via email or on a floppy disk, if you use computer for logging. Use any of the available software or send a plain ASCII file.
