SOC Marathon Sprint
Most sprints run four hours, but since we're Second Class Op's,
we need more time!

Date/Time: March 14, 2009, 1800Z through 2400Z

Exchange:     Member - RST, State/Province/Country, SOC Number
          Non-Member - RST, State/Province/Country, Power Out

QSO Points:                          Member = 5 Points
            Non-Member, Different Continent = 4 Points
                 Non-Member, Same Continent = 2 Points

Multiplier:   SPC (State/Province/Country) total for all bands.
              The same station may be worked on more than one band for
              QSO  points and SPC credit.

Power Multiplier:     0 - < 250 mW = X 15;
                 250 mW - < 1 Watt = X 10;
                         1 W - 5 W = X 7;
                          Over 5 W = X 1.

Suggested Frequencies:

160 Meters            1810 kHz

Points (total for all bands) X SPCs (total for all bands) X Power Multiplier

Apply an additional multiplier of 1.5 if using a homebrew paddle (kits such
as the NorCal and AZ ScQRPions paddles qualify).

All entries are Multi-Band to promote maximum participation.
