Hello everyone

A final reminder that the 68th Oceania DX contest is happening over the next two weekends as

PHONE Section: 0800 UTC Saturday 2 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 3 October 2004
CW Section: 0800 UTC Saturday 9 October to 0800 UTC Sunday 10 October 2004

You can expect to hear some of the rarer prefixes in the Pacific region as well as plenty of VK and
ZL stations.

The objective is for Oceania transmitting stations to contact as many stations as possible both
inside and outside the Oceania region. Non-Oceania transmitting stations are to contact as many
stations as possible inside the Oceania region.

The exchange is RST plus serial number. Each QSO counts 20 points on 160m, 10 points on 80m, 5
points on 40m, 1 point on 20m, 2 points on 15m and 3 points on 10m. Final score is the total QSO
points multiplied by the total number of prefixes worked (each prefix counted once per band). Send
CW cabrillo logs to cw at oceaniadxcontest.com and Phone cabrillo logs to ph at oceaniadxcontest.com .
Paper logs are to be addressed to PO Box 6464, Wellington 6030, New Zealand.

The complete 2004 rules are available at http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com .

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the contest. Please spread the word
and lets hope for some good conditions to make it the biggest and best Oceania contest so far.
