More Info About Contest:

We organize an international contest, using the rules and our rich experiance from the domestic Bulgarian competitions. No unusefull information sent or received, no multipliers, no mistakes. 100% computer check of all the contacts. In this contest the exchange of the call sign does not mean that the contact is over. You still have to send and receive 6 figures WITH NO MISTAKE !!! High tempo non stop. The correspondents never end. You are allowed to work the same station up to 16 times durring the contest period. This system for creating the control numbers has been used in all the domestic LZ competition since 1975 and we are glad to see that it is well excepted outside Bulgaria. We wish you good luck in LZ OPEN CONTEST.
