The EU Sprint Gang hereby invites you to participate in the  two 
European Sprint Contests held in Autumn 1997

Entrants:  any  licensed station may enter the  Sprint.  European 
stations can work everybody, stations outside of Europe can  work 
only European stations.

one time.

Exchange: all of the following data MUST BE PART OF THE EXCHANGE:
a) your callsign, 
b) the other station's callsign,
c) your serial number starting from 001 (RST not required),
d) your name or nickname.
Please  note  that  BOTH  callsigns  MUST  be  repeated  by  BOTH 
A valid exchange is: "OK2FD de I2UIY 118 Paolo" while "OK2FD  118 
Paolo" is NOT a valid exchange.

Special QSY Rule: if any station initiates a call (by sending CQ, 
QRZ?, etc.), he is permitted to work ONLY one station on the same 
frequency. He must thereafter move AT LEAST 2 (two) kHz before he 
may  call  another station or before he may  solicit  again  (CQ, 
QRZ?, etc.) other calls.

Valid  contacts:  valid contacts are QSOs  correctly  logged  and 
confirmed. Each operator may use ONE and ONLY one name during the 
Sprint. If the exchange is copied incorrectly, that operator will 
receive  zero  (0) points. In case of miscopied  callsigns,  both 
stations will receive zero (0) points for that QSO.

Scoring: each valid QSO counts one 1 (one) point. The final score 
is the total number of QSOs.

Awards:  there are NO awards or prizes since these contests  have 
been created to test the individual skills only. Results will  be 
forwarded   as  soon  as  possible  to  Leagues,  magazines   and
