MORE INFO

 Objective:

The objective of this contest is to have a competition between Nordic and Baltic Countries.

(ES, JW, JX, LA, LY, OH, OHØ, OJØ, OX, OY, OZ, SM, TF and YL to contact each other.)

There is also a national competition between nations. (JW/Svalbard and JX/Jan Mayen count for LA/Norway and OHØ/Aaland and OJØ/Market Reef for OH/Finland in this contest).

 Dates/Times:

Sunday morning of the 2nd full weekend of January each year.

In year 2013:

 CW:   Sunday 13 January 2013, 0630 - 0830 UTC

SSB:   Sunday 13 January 2013, 0900 - 1100 UTC

Note! The CW- and SSB-parts are separate contests. Also mixed-mode results (CW+SSB) will be listed.

 Frequencies:

Only 80 and 40 meter bands.

CW: 3510-3560 and 7010-7040 kHz.

SSB: 3600-3650, 3700-3775 and 7050-7200 kHz.

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THE FREQUENCY LIMITS! QSO made outside of the limits will give zero points.

 Categories:

  • A - Single Operator HP
  • B - Single Operator LP (Maximum 100 Watts output)
  • Multi Operator (At least 50% of the operators should be 23 years old or younger. Age of each operator must be indicated in the log)!

 National competition:

The total 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.

 Contest call:

CQ NRAU de ---

 Message:

RS(T) + serial number starting from 001 + 2 letters showing Amt / Fylke / Län / Province / Region, e.g. 59(9) 001 VN. (See abbreviation lists at the end of the rules).

Note: Use different serial numbers for CW and SSB, as they are two separate contests. Multi-Operator may use separate numbers per band.

 Points:

Each station can be contacted once per band both on CW and SSB, i.e. two times in each part.

Every correct two-way QSO with ES, JW, JX, LA, LY, OH, OHØ, OJØ, 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 that station is found in at least ten (10) other logs.

 Multipliers:

Each worked Amt / Fylke / Län / Province / Region etc. per band gives one (1) multiplier for each contest. (See the multiplier list below.).

A QSO with a station not submitting a log will not give a multiplier, unless that station is found in at least ten (10) other logs.

I.e. the multipliers are counted separately on 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 must be submitted separately for CW and SSB within 7 days.

By submitting your log, you agree that your log and the corresponding log checking report may be made open to the public.

Logs for 2013 should be sent to nrau(at)erau.ee

Electronic submission should be done according to instructions on www.nrau.net/nrau-baltic-contest.html

Use the CABRILLO format and please ensure that you fill out all of the header information.

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.

Use the following examples for naming the CABRILLO log files:

CW: OH2XYZ_CW.log     SSB: OH2XYZ_SSB.log

 Awards:

Awards and prices to the first three (3) on CW, SSB and MIXED in each category.

Also the best five (5) CW + SSB participants will be awarded (both CW and SSB contests must have been participated to qualify in MIXED category).

Additional or fewer awards depending on the number of contestants.

Every participating country may give out additional awards and prices.

 Disqualification:

Violation of Amateur Radio Regulations in the country of the contestant or the rules of this contest, unsportsmanlike conduct and taking credit for unverifiable QSOs or multipliers may lead to disqualification.

The decisions by the Contest Committee are final and definite. The right to make changes in these rules is reserved.

 Arrangement of the contest:

The arrangement alternates between SSA, NRRL, EDR, ERAU, LRAL, LRMD and SRAL in that order.
