The 48th WAE-DX-Contest is scheduled for the upcoming weekend, September
14/15 for the phone portion. EU stations work DX and DX stations work
EU in this world-wide competition. Operation is restricted to the
five classic HF bands from 10 to 80 meters. Exchange RST and serial

the chapter about QTC traffic.
There are minor changes in the rules in respect to previous years:
