                 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.

CW only.

Entry Categories:
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.

160m  only,  1810-1950 kHz. Participants MUST  carefully  observe 
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.

Final Score
The sum of QSO Points times the sum of multipliers.

stations.  A  callsign  may not appear  more   than   3   (three)  
times   as   a correspondent.  SWLs MUST log no more than 1 (one) 
QSO on each line of  their log.
