IARU Region-1 160m Contest 1997
This contest is sponsored by IARU Reg. 1 and the 1997
edition is processed by ARI (Italy).
This is a worldwide competition: everyone may work
everyone else, including stations in his own country. The
contest may be entered by all licenced radioamateurs and SWLs.
Date and time
The contest will be held on the third full weekend of November
from 14:00 UTC Saturday until 08:00 UTC Sunday. In 1997 it will
be on November 15/16.
SO = Single operator
MOST = Multi operator single tx
SWL = SWL, single operator
Note: single operators may operate up to 14 hours. Rest periods
must be marked clearly in the log and must be at least 1 hour
long. Multi operators may have only 1 signal on the air at any
given time. Everyone is permitted to use PacketCluster and such
use does not change a single operator into a multi operator.

the IARU Band Plan as well as their national regulations and
limits for 160m.
Send RST and a two or three letter/digit DISTRICT CODE (i. e. DOK
for DL, Dept. for F, County for G, State for USA, Province for I
and VE, Territory for VK, and so on).
One (1) point for each complete QSO.
One (1) multiplier for each different DISTRICT CODE,
One (1) multiplier for each DXCC/WAE country.
The sum of QSO Points times the sum of multipliers.
