5th European HF Championship

Also the EUHFC 98 has a number of records by scores as well as by the participation. More than 400 logs was received. Introduction of new categories - LP categories in all modes proved more than justified. The number of submitted LP logs tripled the number of logs in HP categories.

Highest scores beat last years achievements in all categories due to improving conditions on 15 and 10 meters and higher number of participants. Four high ranked stations in CW/SSB and CW categories exceeded the bench-mark of 1000 valid QSOs for the first time. However, we are somehow saddened that the mentioned positive moves do not apply for the SSB category, which is a general trend in most HF contests. Partially we can blame insufficent incentives for the SSB contacts in mixed category. High scores and large number of participants are further proved by the national scores, where Lithuanians are leading the crowd, by more than doubling last years best, followed by Russians and Slovenians.

The winners in both CW/SSB categories come from Finland, Timo Pohjola, OH1MDR operating OH1AF in the HP and Mika Hartikainen, OH4YR in the LP category. In CW HP standing the winner is Zdravko Balen, 9A9A and LP honors going to Kasper Gyorgy, HA1CW. Fabio Schettino, I4UFH took the win for SSB HP and Zlatko Maticic, 9A2EU for the low power ranking.

It is particularly promising that e-mail submission of logs is on a steep rise, thus making a hard work of verifying committee considerably easier. There were just a few exceptions of hand-written logs among the highest scoring stations. Due to strict and precise log checking rather high percentage of errors found and so are the scores reductions in the final standings. Among top ten in all categories, only 6 stations with less than 1% of errors are found. On the other hand, we can find stations with 5-8% errors among highest ranked. We had to omit 25 stations from the final standings, due to unacceptable error rate - it exceeded 10%, or there were just too many inconsistencies in certain logs. Some contesters still logged impossible multipliers, however most of the contesters did not count them, thus escaping needless score reduction. Surprisingly enough and most probably due to work-them-first-ask-later attitude or out of ignorance, some of the entrants logged IT9BLB/IH9 as a valid contact. IT9BLB/IH9 operated the contest, although being warned in advance that it does not count as a station located inside of the European continent. All IH9 contacts were removed from the logs without penalty.

New operating techniques, such as using two or more radios on different bands, which is supported by most advanced contest programs, undoubtedly helped certain stations in achieving exceptionally high scores. However, it is very hard to verify by just checking the logs, if the contacts on different bands were made simultaneously or within a needed time frame. Taking into consideration a particular station, which has made over 400 band changes during a 12 hour period, or to put it another way - one band change every minute and a half, such suspicion certainly is justyfied. In order to reduce possibility of using multiple radios in a way which defeats the contest rules, a new rule permitting only 10 band changes per hour will be applied in the future. On a top of it, a special, from the contest sponsor certified listening-only stations, will be monitoring the event. We have further accepted two essential changes in the contest rules. Due to a considerable reduction of final scores, as a function of 3 QSO point penalty for every error found, only 1 QSO point penalty will apply in the future. To revitalize activity in the SSB part of the EUHFC, we have taken decision to equalize QSO credit for both modes and add separate multiplier count for CW and SSB mode in the MIXED category. We strongly believe, that this approach will balance the CW and SSB operation.
