      Multiplier: Each WAE / DXCC and each Calldistrict in JA, W, VE per band 1 point.

      QTC-Points: pro QTC 1 Punkt
      Additional points can be achieved by QTCs. A QTC is the report of a contest QSO back to sanother tation.

      The following rules apply:

      1. A valid QTC contains time, call sign and serial number of the reported QSO. Example: "1307 DA1AA 431" means that DA1AA was worked at 1307 UTC and sent serial number 431.

      2. Each QSO may only be reported once as a QTC. The QTC may not be reported back to the original station.

      3. Every QTC that was correctly transferred, counts one point for the sender and one point for the receiver.

      4. Two stations may exchange up to 10 QTCs maximum. The two stations may establish contact several times to complete the quota.

      5. QTCs are transferred by means of QTC series. A QTC series is a block of one (minimum) to ten (maximum) QTCs. QTC series are numbered using the following scheme: The first figure is the progressive serial number starting with one; the second figure denotes the number of QTCs in the series. Example: "QTC 3/7" means this is the third QTC series transmitted by this station and it contains seven QTCs.

      6. For every QTC series that is transmitted or received, the QTC number, time and frequency band of the QTC transmission must be logged. If any of this data is missing from your log, no credit will be given for this QTC series.

      Hint: QSOs that have been made on Saturday, can be included in QTCs send on Sunday.

      Logs: only electonic logs in in STF, Cabrillo oder TXT-Format to:


      Final Score: Total QSO plus QTC on all band multiplied by the sum of all multipliers.

      Log Deadline: one week after the end of the contest.
