    a correspondent, located within polar circle, and 300 points
    for each QSO with memorial station with callsign "RAEM";

    exchanges counts as one point separately for latitude and
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
contest committee.
