 Scoring:

Sum of QSO points × sum of multipliers = TOTAL SCORE.

 Logs:

Electronic log submissions:

Please submit electronic logs as plain ASCII-files. Do not send Word, Excel or ADIF-files as they create extra work as they have to manually be converted to ASCII-files before processing.

The Cabrillo format is prefered but not mandatory. Please make sure that you fill in the Cabrillo header correctly. An additional and COMPLETELY separate single band of choice log for Single Op all bands entrants must show the same information as above and be named with your callsign.band.

Information on Cabrillo format for SARTG contest can be found here. Contest name is SARTG-RTTY.

Users of "RTTY" by WF1B should convert their files. A conversion program can be found here.

For non-Cabrillo entries only two files are required, callsign.all and callsign.sum. These logs must be in chronological order and show: band, date/time (UTC), call sign, exchange message sent and received, multipliers and QSO points.

Multi-Op stations must include the call signs and names of all operators involved.

Electronic logs can be submitted by Email or on 3 ½ inch disk together with a printed summary sheet.

Paper log submissions:

The log must be in chronological order showing the same information as required for electronic ones. In addition, a written summary sheet, dupe sheet and multiplier sheet must be submitted.

Check logs:

Check logs are very much appreciated, they are used for cross checking of all entries.

Your comments will be very much appreciated.

 Awards:

To the top stations in each class, country and district, if the number of QSOs is reasonable.
