The EU Sprint Gang hereby invites you to participate in the four 
European Sprint Contests held in 2000.

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

Categories: Single Operator ONLY. Only ONE signal may be aired at  one 

SSB: first Saturday in October - 7 October 2000 - managed by I2UIY
CW: second Saturday in October - 14 October 2000 - managed by OK2FD

Time: from 15:00 UTC until 18:59 UTC.

Bands: 20, 40 and 80 meters only. 
Pilot frequencies are: SSB: 14.250, 7.050, 3.730. CW: 14.040, 7.025, 

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

Logs: a single chronological log is required. PLEASE SEND US YOUR  LOG 
ON  A FLOPPY DISK. Use any of the available software or send  a  plain
