I've always loved working the ARRL 10 meter contest, but this year I'm
planning something a little different, and I have a few questions.
A friend and I are planning to 'join forces' and 'guest op' at another
friends station. Being two of us, that would put us in the Multi/single
catagory. My question arises from the contest exchange. We are both Tech +
class license holders. The rules on contest exchange reads like this:
4. Contest Exchange:
4.1. W/VE stations (including KH6/KL7) send signal report and state or
province (District of Columbia stations send signal report and DC).
4.1.1. Novice and Technician Plus stations sign /N or /T.
OK, so from this I gather that we should sign OUR-CALL / T, [I'm not sure
which call we will use yet]. BUT, upon further reading, the only other
mension of the /T is in the scoring where it says:
5.1. QSO points:
5.1.1. Count two points for each complete two-way phone QSO.
5.1.2. Count four points for each two-way CW QSO.
5.1.3. Count eight points for CW QSOs with US Novice or Technician Plus
stations signing /N or /T (28.1 to 28.3 MHz only).
OK, so we're worth 8 points on CW, but on phone we're just another qso [2
pts]. So my question is this: Do we HAVE TO sign /T on phone???
Normally it wouldn't matter, I would just do it and go on. But this year we
are TRYING to put together a 'competitive' station, so we may actually be
able to put some runs together.
Anyone care to share their thoughts on the matter?
