WAE (European) DX Contest 1995: Rules

CW : 12 Aug 0000 UTC - 13 Aug 2400 UTC
SSB: 9 Sep 0000 UTC - 10 Sep 2400 UTC
RTTY: 11 Nov 0000 UTC - 12 Nov 2400 UTC

For more detailed information please write to WAEDC Committee, Box 1126,
D-74370 Sersheim, Germany (SAE/IRC).

This is the 41th annual contest sponsored by the DARC. The activity will be
between European countries and the rest of the world (except RTTY where
everybody works everybody).

3.5 - 7 - 14 - 21- 28MHz. Minimum operating time on a band is 15minutes. A
quick band change is allowed to work new multipliers.

(A) Single operator, all bands.
(B) Multi-operator, single transmitter. Only one signal may be on the air at
any given time, except when new mutipliers are worked on other bands. It is
not allowed to transmit or receive QTCs parallel to QSO- traffic. (C) SWL.

DX packet cluster spotting is allowed in all classes.

Only 36 hours of operating time out of the 48-hour contest period are
permitted for single operator stations. The 12-hour off timemay be taken in
one, but not more than 3 periods any time during the contest and must be
indicated in the log. Off time must be at least 1 hour.

Exchange: RS(T) plus QSO number starting with 001.

One point per QSO. If QTC traffic (see there) is made, one point for each
complete QTC.

QTC Traffic:
Additional point credit may be earned by making use of the QTC traffic
feature. A QTC is a report of a confirmed QSO that took place earlier in the
contest.A QTC can only be sent by a non-European station back to a Eu-
ropean station. (But only once and not to the station reported in the QTC.)
The general idea is that after a number of Europeans have been worked by a
DX station, a list of these QSOs can be reported back during a QSO with
another European station.

A QTC contains the time, call and QSO number of the station being reported
(i.e. 1234 DF0AA 031, which means that DF0AA has been worked at 1234 UTC and
gave serial number 031).

DX: A maximum of 10 QTCs to a EU station is allowed.
EU: You can receive a maximum of 10 QTCs from a DX station.

(Exception RTTY, which allows transmitting and receiving of QTCs, but not
between the same continent. The sum of QTCs sent and received between two
stations must not exceed 10.)

A station can be worked several times to complete the number of 10 QTCs.QTCs
are sent in series. 3/7 indicates that this is thethird series of QTCs and 7
QTCs are being reported.

The multiplier for Europeans is determined by the number of DXCC countries
outside Europe worked on each band. The multiplier for non-Europeans is de-
termnined by the number of European countries worked on each band (see WAE
country list). In the RTTY part themultiplier is determined by the number of
countries worked on the WAE/DXCC country lists.

Bonus Multiplier: Multiply your multiplier on 80 meters by 4, on 40 meters
by 3, and on 20/15/10 meters by 2.

Final score:
Total QSO points plus total QTC points times the sum total multiplier from
all bands. (i.e.:(200 QSOs+100 QTCs)*80 multiplier points= 24000 final

Only single operator, all band class may be used. The same callsign,
European or non-European, may be counted only once per band. The log must
contain both callsigns of a QSO and at least one of the control numbers.
Each callsign counts one point, each complete QTC one point (only a maximum
of ten QTCs per station). You can count up to two QSO points and two
multipliers in one QSO. The multiplier is determined by the DXCC and WAE
country lists.

Club competition:
Club members must operate within a 500km diameter and the club is required
to be a local club, not a national organization. To be listed, three entries
from a club are requested and the club's score is determined by its member
scores in the CW, SSB and RTTY part of the WAEDC. A special trophy will be
awarded by the DARC to the winning clubs from Europe and Non-Europe.

Certificates and plaques:
Certificates are awarded to the top scorers in each class in each country.
Continental winners will receive a plaque.

It is suggested that you use the official DARC or equivalent log
forms.Submit a dupe sheet for each band. A summary sheet showing the scoring
and signed de- claration is required. Logs may be sub mitted on a disk. The
5,25 or 3,5 inch disk must be MS-DOS formatted (40 or 80 tracks) and the
ASCII files must con- tain all contest QSO information in the same order as
the usual paper logs.

Logs must be postmarked no later than September 15th for the CW section, Oc-
tober 15th for the SSB section and December 15th for the RTTY section.

Subject: New contest publication by CQ?
Message-ID: <v01510116ac4bf33b0d9c@[]>

While browsing the world wide web today, I came across a web page by OH2KI
with this information at the top:

Updated Aug 1,  1995

                             CQ CONTEST
                is the name of the new magazine!
  First 50 page issue will come out in November 1995,
     editor in cheaf K3EST, publisher CQ publishing.

I don't want to start any rumors, but it sounds like the NCJ/QST thing is
in the works at CQ... a specialized contest publication.

Anybody know more?
