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: Colorful certificates will be issued to the winners.
Results will be forwarded as soon as possible to Leagues,
magazines and bulletins.
