OBJECT:

Stations outside of Oklahoma work as many Oklahoma stations in as many Oklahoma counties as possible. Stations in Oklahoma work anyone.

EXCHANGE:

Oklahoma stations send QSO number and county. Stations outside of Oklahoma send QSO number and State, Canadian Province, or DXCC Country. Note that Oklahoma stations working other Oklahoma stations must log the complete exchange, including county even though they all count as the 'OK' multiplier. Entries with incomplete or improperly logged QSOs will be subject to penalties or disqualification.

QSO POINTS:

Each complete non-duplicate Phone contact is worth 2 points. Each complete non-duplicate Digital mode or CW contact is worth 3 points. No partial contact credit.

MULTIPLIERS:

Oklahoma stations count U.S. states (50) and Canadian Provinces (9) for a maximum of 59.

All others use Oklahoma counties for a maximum of 77. Number each multiplier as worked.

SCORE:

The total score is the total number of QSO points multiplied by the total number of multipliers.
