Does anybody have the correct web site for the SARTG RTTY Contest this
weekend?  I have tried the URL on WA7BNM Contest site and get no results and
it's the same with IE8 and Firefox.

I Google SARTG RTTY RULES and get the same results, a web site that has
nothing to do with the SARTG Rules site posted by Bruce.

This is a copy and paste from the website I got from WA7BNM

*Sponsored by the
Scandinavian Amateur Radio Teleprinter Group*

*Third full weekend in August*

*17 - 18 August 2013*

*Contest Periods:*

Three (3) separate periods:

*0000 - 0800 UTC Saturday

*/NOTE 1:/* Single operator all band entrants may also enter one single band entry of their choice.

*/NOTE 2:/* DX spotting and alerting assistance is permitted in all classes.

*/NOTE 3:/* "Single TX" means only one transmitted signal is allowed on air at the same time.


*RTTY* only.


RST + QSO number, starting with 001.

*QSO Points:*

 * QSO with own country, *5* points.
 * QSO with other countries in own continent, *10* points.
 * QSO with other continents, *15* points.

Same station can be worked once on each band.


Each DXCC country on each band, including first contact with Australia, Canada, Japan and USA. Additionally, each call area in *VK, VE, JA* and *W* will count as one (*1*) multiplier on each band (*W1, WA4, JA2, VK4*).

*/NOTE:/* Stations operating from call areas other than their call ID, __must use '*/x*' for their actual call area, i.e. *K5DJ/1*.


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


*Electronic log submissions:*

   The *Cabrillo* format is prefered but not mandatory. Please make
   sure that you fill in the Cabrillo header correctly and name the
   file *callsign.log*. 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.log*, i.e. sm7bhm_80.log.

   Information on Cabrillo format for SARTG contest can be found here
   <http://www.sartg.com/contest/wwcabril.htm>. Contest name is

   Users of "RTTY" by WF1B should convert their files. A conversion
   program can be found here <http://www.sartg.com/contest/wwcbrwf1.htm>.

   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.

   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.

   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
   togheter with a printed summary sheet.

   Cabrillo logs can also be uploaded directly to our log robot
   *http://ua9qcq.com* <http://ua9qcq.com/en/submit_log.php?lang=en/>.
   The robot checks the log and a claimed list is also avaible.

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

   Your comments will be very much appreciated.
