Hi contesters,

ES OPEN HF Championship will take place this Saturday, April 16th, from 0500 
to 0859 UTC on 40m and 80m! I hope you will have chance to participate in 
this nice small contest. There will be many ES stations active and contest 
is held both in SSB and CW.

International winners get special trophies from ERAU plus all country 
winners will be awarded. There is also a special LP trophy.

We are trying to be the fastest log checkers in the world and announce the 
results about 1 month after the log dealine!! We hope this makes it much 
more interesting for you. Every participant also gets personal UBN files via 

NB! This year log deadline is May 20th, not June 1st anymore!

Please check the results and rules from www.erau.ee:

Rules are very easy: the contest consists of 4 equal one hour periods where 
you can work a station once on both bands. Thus 8 times maximum in total 
during the contest. Foreign stations can work ES stations only and 
multipliers are ES region prefixes (0 to 9) on both bands and modes. So 20 
for CW/SSB and 40 for Mixed class.

CW QSOs give 2 points and SSB 1 point. Report is RST + QSO number.

Text format logs should be sent to esopen at erau.ee

You can use WPX configuration of different logging programs as ES prefixes 
are all multipliers. Just have to clean dupe sheet after every hour or start 
new log. TR log is easy to use, we have a sample CFG file on ERAU web page. 
Let me know if you have some very clever solutions for other logging 
programs - I would very much appreciate!

CU on Sat morning,

ERAU HF Manager
