Its a world-wide competition: everybody can work everybody.

allowed  according  to  IARU Band Plans. Band  AND  MODE  can  be
changed only after 10 minutes you have been on it (Multi Oprs).

Italian stations will send RST and two letters to identify  their
province.  Other stations will send RST and a serial number  from
001.  The  serial  number  will NOT  restart  from  001  on  each

1. each Italian province (103) count 1 (one) multiplier,

1. QSO/HRD with own country counts 0 (zero) point but is good for
the multipliers credit.
2. QSO/HRD with own continent counts 1 (one) point,
3. QSO/HRD with different continent counts 3 (three) points,
4.  QSO/HRD  with any Italian (I & IS0) station counts  10  (ten)
The  same  station  can be contacted on the  same  band  once  on
SSB/CW/RTTY  but  only  the first QSO  is  good  for  multipliers
credit. PLEASE REMEMBER that I (Italy) and IS0 (Sardinia  Island)
are NOT country-multipliers.

The sum of QSO/points from all bands times the sum of multipliers
from all bands.

Listeners  are required to log the callsigns of both the  station
heard  and the correspondent station. Score is  calculated  based
only  upon the station heard using the same rules as  trasmitting
stations. A callsign may not appear more than 3 (three) times  as
a correspondent regardless of mode. SWLs MUST log no more than  1
(one) QSO on each line of their log.

Separate logs are necessary for each band. Logs must show all the
QSOs  data. A summary sheet is required showing all  the  scoring
details,  class  of entry, name, callsign, full  address  of  the
applicant, callsign of other operators and a signed  declaration.
Logs  must be mailed within 30 days from the end of  the  contest
and addressed to:
ARI Contest Manager, Paolo Cortese, I2UIY, P. O. Box 14,  I-27043
BRONI (PV) Italy (E-mail: <i2uiy@contesting.com>).

**VERY  IMPORTANT** Logs on diskette are really very welcome  and
accepted in substitution of paperlogs. Please send us your log on
diskette.  Accepted formats are: N6TR, K1EA, EI5DI, UA1AAF,  WF1B
as well as the MS/DOS software distributed FREE of cost from  the
Contest  Committee.  A  printed  summary  sheet  must  always  be

**NEW**  Alternatively,  logs  in ASCII format  (or  as  attached
files)  may be sent via e-mail addressed  to  <ari@contesting.com>.
You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your log within
48 hours.

Logs  will  be  carefully checked by the  Contest  Committee  and
mistakes may cause a score reduction. Disqualification may  apply
for:  excessive  number of unmarked duplicates  (more  than  2%),
violation  of the "10 minutes rule" (either for band  and  mode),
excessive declared score, log without the summary sheet.  instead
to  disqualify a log, the Committee may decide to penalize it  by
erasing a percentage of its score.

A  plaque with a certificate will be awarded to the  top  scoring
station  in  each class. Special plaques can be  awarded  by  the
Contest Committee if country/continental/call-area  partecipation
will  justify the decision. A certificate will be awarded to  No.
2,  3, 4, 5 top scoring stations in each class as well as to  the
top scoring stations in each country in each class.

An  IBM-compatible  software  to  administrate  this  contest  is
available  FREE  of cost. It can be used on real-time  or  either
after  the contest. It calculates points, multipliers and  score,
you  have just to type the callsign and the received  report.  It
prints  logs, summary and dupe sheets as well as QSL  labels.  It
has   PacketCluster  capability.  An  updated  version   is   now
available, revised and modified. It is shareware and it can be
downloaded from <http://loja.kkn.net/~i2uiy/>.

A brand new software to handle ARI DX Contest has been written by
UA1AAF. It can be used on real-time or either after the contest.
It sends CW with the usual interfaces and it can be used in both
K1EA or N6TR modes. It is shareware and it can be downloaded from

The ARI DX Contest All Time Records sorted by country, continent
and category can be found on <http://loja.kkn.net/~i2uiy/>. On the
same page is available a set of rules written in Spanish.
