The basic idea of this award is a proportional combination of European and DX contacts in one calendar year.
It is issued for the following classes: 2x CW, 2x SSB and mixed modes.
A minimum of 50 points is required for the EU-DX Award per year;
20 points must be obtained by contacts with European countries and 30 points by contacts with countries outside Europe.
Each country counts one point for 40 through 10 meters, and two points on 80 and 160 meters.
All bands may be used.
European countries are defined in the WAE country list, non-European countries in the valid DXCC list.
Bonus points can be obtained for any additional block of four European and six non-European countries within the same calendar year.
Each year's score may be added to obtain the EU-DX 500 badge, stickers will be awarded for any block of 50 points, regardless of the annual scores.
20 EU-points 2001 + 30 DX-points 2001 = 50 points for 2001,
28 EU-points 2000 + 42 DX-points 2000 = 70 points for 2000,
32 EU-points 1999 + 48 DX-points 1999 = 80 points for 1999,
total 200 points, i.e. four stickers.
