I see that the WWDXC Western Washington DX Club has posted the updated rules 
for the annual Salmon Run contest in pdf format:


It's our state version of a QSO party, but with significantly sized and tasty 
bits of salmon for prizes.  If you can't get to the fish market at Pike Place 
Fish Market in Seattle ( http://www.pikeplacefish.com/ ) for your salmon, 
consider this contest.


Washington Salmon Run

September 19-20, 2009

1600Z - 0700Z Saturday

1600Z - 2400Z Sunday

Each year the Western Washington DX Club sponsors the Washington Salmon Run, a 
QSO Party where stations outside Washington contact Washington stations and 
counties, and Washington stations contact any other station, inside or outside 
the state.  Last year 221 entries reported 28, 850 QSOs in the Salmon Run, and 
four stations worked all 39 Washington counties during the event!  Seventeen 
Salmon Awards went to call-area and country winners outside Washington, and 
twelve Salmon Awards went to in-state category winners.  In addition, three 
entries won plaques for Out of Washington Low Power (sponsored by N7UK), 
Eastern Washington Low Power (sponsored by the Spokane DX Association, and 
Washington Club Multi-Operator/Single Transmitter (sponsored by K7WA).

The Salmon Run recognizes Single-Operator and Multi-Operator, High Power, Low 
Power, and QRP, as well as CW, Phone, Digital, and Mixed Modes.  You can 
operate from your home station, go mobile, on a County Expedition, or a County 
Rove.  There is also a category called Unlimited where almost anything goes, 
the only limitation being that all transmitters have to be in the same county!  
Look for the Western Washington DX Club station W7DX handing out 500 bonus 
points for QSOs on Phone, CW, and Digital.

See the 2009 Salmon Run website for Rules, a County Activity list, Prizes, and 
more Salmon Run information.

Whether you get on for one hour or the whole weekend, you will have a great 
experience in the 2009 Washington Salmon Run!
