EXCHANGE: Echange RST, SPC, First Name, PWR.
Suggest using R as decimal point when reporting power. I.e., 1R5 =
1.5W, R5 = 500mW, R25 = 250mW, R025 = 25mW.
SCORING: QSO points are awarded to contestants according to their power
output. Power may be changed from QSO to QSO and must be noted in the
1001mW and over 1 Point
501mW to 1000mW 2 Points
251mW to 500mW 4 Points
101mW to 250mW 8 Points
51mW to 100mW 16 Points
26mW to 50mW 24 Points
25mW or less 32 Points
Multipliers are SPC on each band. I.e., the same states may be worked
on a second or third band, and will count as multipliers on that band.
Bonus multiplier: Number of identical first letters of first names
worked. I.e., worked Jim, John, Jennie, Joe, Jack, = 5 multiplier.
Note: one name only counts once - if you work 10 Jacks, that's still
just one multiplier.
Club Bonus: Anyone who works a club station which is running the
specified power levels listed below collects bonus points as follows:
(Clubs will not raise or lower power to accommodate a single QSO.)
900mW 1,000 points
500mW 2,000 points
250mW 3,000 points
100mW 4,000 points
50mW 5,000 points
Calculate score for each days activity:
(QSO Points) X (Total SPC Multipliers all bands) X (Bonus Multiplier) +
(Club Bonus total) = Daily Score.
Add the two best daily scores to find Total Score.
