There has been some incorrect information published regarding the 
1994 Bermuda Contest.  What is in the CQ contest column is NOT correct.  
The contest has been changed to be a world wide contest this year and 
permits contacts within each country (i.e., US can work US). 

The following is a shortened listing of the rules:

1. The Bermuda Contest shall be open to licensed amateurs worldwide.

2. The contest period is from 0001 UTC March 19, 1994 to 2400 UTC 
   March 20, 1994 (48 hours).  Actual operating period is not to exceed
   24 hours.  Off periods are to be clearly logged and each is to be not 
   less than 2 consecutive hours.

3. ELIGIBILITY:  All stations shall be single operator only.

4. BANDS: 3.5, 7, 14, 21 and 28 MHz amateur bands only are to 
   be used.  No cross band or cross mode contacts are permitted. 
   Phone and CW may be used on the above bands.

5. EXCHANGES: A valid report shall consist of RS(T) and serial number.  
   A contact with the same station on SSB and CW on a single band will count 
   for QSO points only and not as an additional multiplier.

6. SCORING: All valid contacts will be worth 5 points.  The final score 
   is the sum of QSO points for all bands multiplied by the number of 
   countries on each band, then multiplied by the number of VP9 contacts 
   each band.  Valid countries shall be taken from the most recent 
   DXCC and WAE country lists.

7. LOGS:  Each log, duplicate and summary sheet must be clearly labelled 
   with the operator's call sign and date (including year) and, where 
   appropriate, band and mode.  All dates and times must be stated in 
   UTC and frequencies stated in MHz.

   All contestants must compute their own score and check for duplicate 
   contacts.  Dupe sheets must be submitted for all bands which 200 
   or more contacts have been made.  A penalty of 3 contacts will be 
   deducted for every duplicate.  A multiplier sheet of VP9 contacts 
   must be provided.  All contestants must provide a signed statement 
   confirming they have observed the rules of the contest and the terms 
   of their license.  In addition, the contestant must provide their full 
   name, station QTH, full mailing address and a contact telephone 

8. All logs must be received by the Contest Committee, P.O. Box HM275, 
   Hamilton HM AX, Bermuda not later than 11 a.m. June 1, 1994.

Hope to see you in the contest.

73, Fred  K1EFI
