All contacts must be 2-way PSK31.
No repeater, cross-mode or cross-band contacts allowed.
Use no more than the stated maximum for your entry category. Please keep your power output set to a reasonable level to avoid QRMing others. Use the MINIMUM power necessary to make the contact at all times!
QSO points - Each contact counts one (1) QSO point, dupes count (0) points.
Multipliers - Multipliers are the number of unique 070 club numbers worked (including 0000), counted once (not per band).
Final Score = (Total QSO Points) x (Total Different 070 numbers) + (Total Bonus Points) = Final Score.
Each contact with a bonus station counts as one hundred (100) bonus points. You can work each Bonus Station once per band, but please don't ask them to QSY to another band for you. Bonus Stations will try to work as many bands as their equipment and propagation allows to give everyone a chance for extra points, but remember that they are in the contest, too. There is no guarantee that all Bonus Stations will be active on all bands.
