4. General Rules
- All station transmitters, receivers and antennas must be located within a 500 meter diameter circle. All antennas must be physically connected to transmitters and receivers. The use of receiving equipment outside the 500 meter circle is considered unsportsmanlike and violation of this rule make the entrant subject to disqualification.
- A station which complies may be operated remotely via network connection in political entities where remote station operation is legally permitted. A call sign appropriate for the DXCC entity where the station is physically located must be used.
- All entry categories are allowed to use packet and/or web clusters for spotting assistance.
- Self-spotting is not allowed. Soliciting contacts by telephone, telex, internet, packet mail during and before the contest is forbidden.
- Using other stations callsigns for the following - keeping the working frequency on the other bands, making schedules, DX-spotting, moving the multipliers to the other bands - is prohibited.
- The use by an entrant of telephones, telegrams, Internet, packet to solicit contacts during the contest (self-spotting) is not allowed and forces to disqualification of an entrant.
- Single Operator participants may change bands and modes without restrictions. Only one signal can be transmitted at any given time.
- Single Operator: Those stations at which One person performs all of operating, logging, and spotting functions.
- MOST stations: Only one signal can be transmitted at any given time. Exception: two signals on different bands are allowed if and only if the station on another (only one) “multiplier” band picked up a new multiplier.
- MOMT (Multi Op, Multi transmitters): A maximum of two transmitted signals at any time on different bands. Both transmitters may work any and all stations. A station may only be worked twice per band (CW and SSB) regardless of which transmitter is used.
- All of MIXED categories entrants can work the same station both CW and SSB. CW contacts on SSB portion of the band, and SSB contacts on CW portion of the band are prohibited.
- Dupes are contacts made with the same station on the same band and mode. If the first contact between stations is valid, dupes have 0 points value. If the first contact is not valid, second (dupe) contact is accepted.
- Dupe contacts are not penalized; one does not have to mark them in the log submission. Moreover, entrants are strictly recommended to leave DUPES in the log file. DO NOT DELETE DUPES!

INVITATION til DIG
EDR inviterer dig hermed til at deltage i en ganske speciel endags-aktivitet som vi arrangerer for at markere EDR’s 90 års jubilæum, tirsdag den 15. august 2017.
I den forbindelse har vi søgt Erhvervsstyrelsen om (og fået licens til) flere specielle kaldesignaler, som alle danske operatører kan søge om at anvende på dagen. OZ90EDR, 5P90EDR, OX90EDR, OV90EDR og OZ90HQ.
Du tilmelder dig som deltager og får tildelt et kaldesignal som du kun må benytte i det tidsrum du får oplyst.
Det gælder så om at kontakte så mange forskellige radioamatører som muligt på alle bånd med CW, SSB eller Digi modes.

2017 CQ World-Wide WPX Contest
CW: May 27-28, 2017
Starts: 0000 UTC Saturday Ends: 2359 UTC Sunday
For amateurs world wide to contact as many amateurs and prefixes as possible during the contest period.
I. Period of Operation:
48 hours. Single Operator stations may operate 36 of the 48 hours – off times must be a minimum of 60 minutes during which no QSO is logged. Multi-operator stations may operate the full 48 hours.
Only the 1.8, 3.5, 7, 14, 21, and 28 MHz bands may be used. Observance of established band plans is bly encouraged.
RS(T) report plus a progressive contact serial number starting with 001 for the first contact. Note: Multi-Two and Multi-Unlimited entrants use separate serial number sequences on each band.
A. Score: The final score is the result of the total QSO points multiplied by the number of different prefixes worked.
B. QSO Points: A station may be worked once on each band for QSO point credit:
1. Contacts between stations on different continents are worth three (3) points on 28, 21, and 14 MHz and six (6) points on 7, 3.5, and 1.8 MHz.
2. Contacts between stations on the same continent, but different countries, are worth one (1) point on 28, 21, and 14 MHz and two (2) points on 7, 3.5, and 1.8 MHz. Exception: For North American stations only—contacts between stations within the North American boundaries (both stations must be located in North America) are worth two (2) points on 28, 21, and 14 MHz and four (4) points on 7, 3.5, and 1.8 MHz.
3. Contacts between stations in the same country are worth 1 point regardless of band.
C. Prefix Multipliers: The prefix multiplier is the number of valid prefixes worked. Each PREFIX is counted only once regardless of the band or number of times the same prefix is worked.
1. A PREFIX is the letter/numeral combination which forms the first part of the amateur call. Examples: N8, W8, WD8, HG1, HG19, KC2, OE2, OE25, LY1000, etc. Any difference in the numbering, lettering, or order of same shall count as a separate prefix. A station operating from a DXCC entity different from that indicated by its call sign is required to sign portable. The portable prefix must be an authorized prefix of the country/call area of operation. In cases of portable operation, the portable designator will then become the prefix. Example: N8BJQ operating from Wake Island would sign N8BJQ/KH9 or N8BJQ/NH9. KH6XXX operating from Ohio must use an authorized prefix for the U.S. 8th district (/W8, /AD8, etc.). Portable designators without numbers will be assigned a zero (Ø) after the second letter of the portable designator to form the prefix. Example: PA/N8BJQ would become PAØ. All calls without numbers will be assigned a zero (Ø) after the first two letters to form the prefix. Example: XEFTJW would count as XEØ. Maritime mobile, mobile, /A, /E, /J, /P, or other license class identifiers do not count as prefixes.
2. Special event, commemorative, and other unique prefix stations are encouraged to participate. Prefixes must be assigned by the licensing authority of the country of operation.
VI. ENTRY CATEGORIES:
A. Single Operator Categories:One person (the operator) performs all operating and logging functions. There is no limit on band changes. Only one transmitted signal is permitted at any time.

C. Multi-Operator Categories (All Band only): More than one person can contribute to the final score during the official contest period. Select category based on number of transmitted signals.
1. Single-Transmitter (MULTI-ONE): Only one transmitted signal is permitted at any time. A maximum of ten (10) band changes may be made in any clock hour (00 through 59 minutes). For example, a change from 20 meters to 40 meters and then back to 20 meters counts as two band changes. Use a single serial number sequence for the entire log.
a. High Power. Total output power of each transmitted signal must not exceed 1500 watts.
b. Low Power. Total output power of each transmitted signal must not exceed 100 watts.
2. Two-Transmitter (MULTI-TWO): A maximum of two transmitted signals is permitted at any time on two different bands. Both transmitters may work any station. A station may only be worked once per band regardless of which transmitter is used. The log must indicate which transmitter made each QSO (column 81 of CABRILLO QSO template for CQ contests). Each transmitter may make a maximum of eight (8) band changes in any clock hour (00 through 59 minutes). Use a separate serial number sequence for each band. Total output power of each transmitted signal must not exceed 1500 watts.
3. Multi-Transmitter (MULTI-UNLIMITED): A maximum of six transmitted signals, one per band, at any one time. Six bands may be activated simultaneously. Use a separate serial number sequence for each band. Total output power of each transmitted signal must not exceed 1500 watts.
D. Checklog: Entry submitted to assist with the log checking. The entry will not have a score in the results and the log will not be made public.
A single-band log will be eligible for a single-band award only. To be eligible for an award, a Single Operator station must show a minimum of 4 hours of operation. Multi-operator stations must operate a minimum of 8 hours.
A. Plaques are awarded to recognize top performance in a number of categories. View the current list of plaques and sponsors at <www.cqwpx.com/plaques.htm >.
Only one plaque will be awarded per entry. A station winning a World plaque will not be considered for a sub-area award. That award will be given to the runner-up for that area if the number of entries justifies the award.
B. Certificates: Electronic certificates will be made available for download for everyone that submits an on-time entry.
VIII. CLUB COMPETITION:
A plaque will be awarded each year to the club that has the highest aggregate score from logs submitted by its members. To be listed in the results, a minimum of four logs must be received from a club.

H. All requests for contacts, responses to calls, and copying of call signs and contest exchanges must be accomplished during the contest period using the mode and frequencies of the contest.
I. Correction of logged call signs and exchanges after the contest by using any database, recordings, email or other methods of confirming QSOs is not allowed.
J. Call signs logged must be the same as those exchanged over the air by the entrants during the QSO.
XI. LOG INSTRUCTIONS:
Electronic submission of logs is required for all entrants who use a computer to log the contest or prepare contest logs.
A. The log MUST show the following for each contact: correct date and time in UTC, frequency (or band), call sign of the station worked, exchange sent, and exchange received. A log without all required information may be reclassified to Checklog. Contacts should be logged immediately as they are completed. Stations competing for World, Continent, and USA awards must provide accurate frequencies for all contacts in the log.
B. Single band entrants are required to include all contacts made during the contest period, even if on other bands. Only contacts made on the band specified in the Cabrillo header or summary sheet will be considered for scoring purposes. Logs with contacts only on one band will be classified as single band entries.
C. The CABRILLO file format is the standard for logs. See www.cqwpx.com/cabrillo.htm for detailed instructions on filling out the CABRILLO file header. Failure to fill out the header correctly may result in the entry being placed in the wrong category or reclassified as a Checklog. Note: U.S. stations must indicate the station location in the CABRILLO header (e.g., LOCATION: OH).
D. E-mail or Web upload is the expected method of log submission. SSB logs in CABRILLO format should be sent to < ssbcqwpx [dot] com (sbcqwpx [dot] com )>. CW logs in CABRILLO format should be sent to cwcqwpx [dot] com (cwcqwpx [dot] com )>. Include only the entry call sign in the “Subject:” line of the e-mail.

The CQ WPX Contest Committee is responsible for checking and adjudicating the contest entries. Entrants are expected to follow the rules and best amateur radio practices. Violation of the rules of the contest or unsportsmanlike conduct may lead to disciplinary action by the Committee.
A. Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Examples of unsportsmanlike conduct include, but are not limited to:
- ARRANGING or CONFIRMING any contacts during the contest by use of ANY non-amateur radio means such as telephones, Internet, instant messaging, chat rooms, VoIP, social media or web sites.
- Transmissions by the entrant on frequencies outside of license limitations.
- Changing times in the log to meet band change or off time rules.
- Taking credit for excessive unverifiable QSOs or unverifiable multipliers.
- Signals with excessive bandwidth (e.g., splatter, clicks) or harmonics on other bands.
- Running stations making more than 3 contacts without sending their callsign.
B. Observer Program: The Committee may request of any entrant to accept a visit by an observer during the contest. Failure to allow a Committee appointed observer full access to the station during the contest period may result in the entry being disqualified.
C. Audio Recordings: Any single operator entrant (see VI.A.1) competing for a top three finish at the (a) World, (b) Continent, or (c) USA levels, must record the transmitted and received audio as heard by the operator for the duration of the contest operation. The recording must be in a common format (e.g., mp3) and should include the audio to each ear as a separate channel. The recording may be requested by the Committee within 90 days after the log deadline to help adjudicate the log. The recording files must be provided by the entrant within 5 days of the request. If no recording is made available, the Committee may reclassify or disqualify the entry.
D. Disciplinary Actions: In the event of a violation, the entrant is subject to disqualification at the discretion of the Committee.
- DISQUALIFICATION: Entry will be listed at the end of the published results and is not eligible for an award.
- Notification of Committee actions will be sent by email to the address provided with the log submission. The entrant has five days to appeal the decision to the Contest Director. After that time the decision is final.
- An entrant may withdraw the submitted log for any reason within 30 days of the log deadline. Contact the Contest Director for instructions.
- The Committee reserves the right to change the category of any entry based on its examination of the log or other information.
E. Log Checking: All logs are checked using custom software and human judgment.
1. Duplicate contacts are removed with no additional penalty.
2. Contacts with an incorrectly received exchange are removed with no additional penalty.

By submitting a CQ WPX Contest log, and in consideration of the efforts of the CQ WPX Contest Committee to review and evaluate that log, an entrant unconditionally and irrevocably agrees that he/she has: 1) read and understood the rules of the contest and agrees to be bound by them, 2) operated according to all rules and regulations that pertain to amateur radio for the station location, 3) agreed the log entry may be made open to the public, and 4) accepted that the issuing of disqualifications and other decisions of the Committee are official and final. If an entrant is unwilling or unable to agree to all of the foregoing, the entrant should not submit the entry or submit the entry as a Checklog only.
