Annual Russian Cup "Memorial of Ernst Krenkel" ("RAEM")
is held by Krenkel Central Radioclub of Russia on
December 22-23, 2001. CW only on HF bands.
Contest period includes eight one-hour tours:
December 22: 21.00-21.59, 22.00-22.59, 23.00-23.59 UTC;
December 23: 00.00-00.59 UTC, and, after 4-hour brake,
December 23: 05.00-05.59, 06.00-06.59, 07.00-07.59, 08.00-08.59 UTC.
Each station can be worked once per tour (i.e. eight QSOs maximum).
Total number of band changes should not exceed 40.
Entries: SOMB, SOSB, M/S, SWL.
Exchange of next five parts:
(1) QSO serial number starting with 001,
(2) geographic latitude with 1 degree accuracy,
(3) one-letter designator of hemisphere
("N" for "Nord" (North) and "S" for "Sud" (South)),
(4) geographic longitude with 1 degree accuracy,
(5) one-letter designator of hemisphere
("o" for "Ost" (East) and "W" for West).
Example: RW9HZZ sends 00157n85o where 001 is QSO number,
57n and 85o are coordinates (RW9HZZ is at 57N 85E).
Scoring: each contact gives:
- points "for QSO",
- "additional points",
- points for "geographic coordinates difference":
"for QSO": 50 points for each QSO;
"additional points": 100 points for each QSO with
a correspondent, located within polar circle,
300 points for each QSO with memorial station
with callsign RAEM;
"for geographic coordinates difference": each degree
in exchanges counts as one point separately for latitude
Final score is a sum of points. For participants, located
within polar circle, final score is multiplied by factor 1.1.
In case of difficulties, score may be calculated by the
SWLs: each SWL with both correspondents' callsigns and one
of exchanges received, counts 1 point, and each SWL with both
correspondents' callsigns and exchanges received, counts 3 points.
The same station gives points once per tour. Final score is a
sum of points.
