Callsign (PCall)

QTH locator (PWWLo)

Logs needs to be uploaded to the address: upload page in 10 days. Received logs will be displayed on the dedicated web section. Logs received after the deadline will be used as check-logs.

You can verify that your log was received and it’s correct on the Received Logs page.

DX stations – Only the logs with at least one YO QSO will be part of the final results. All the received logs which don’t contain at least one YO QSO will be used as check-log and will give points to other participants.

Only one contact is allowed with the same station, regardless of the QSO mode.


Everyone will receive a downloadable electronic award.

Final remarks:

All participants who sent logs will be listed in the results table. For QSO validation, additional check-logs will be used. These check-logs will be obtained, when possible, from the organizers of other contests taking place in the same time.

QSOs made with stations which haven’t sent logs, and their log was not obtained from organizers of other contests will be scored as follows:

  • zero points if the call is unique (can’t be found in any other logs)
  • if the worked call is present in other logs, the QSO is valid if:
    • the received serial number is correlated with the time of the QSO
    • the received QTH locator is the same as the one received by the majority


  • The call HA8XYZ appears in five received logs. If the serial number received from HA8XYZ is increasing with the time of the QSO on all available logs, the QSO with HA8XYZ will be valid
  • The call HA8XYZ appears in 10 received logs. In 8 logs received QTH is KN06LN, and in 2 logs received QTH is KN07LN. QTH KN06LN will be considered the correct one.

If the time difference is higher than 5 minutes, the QSO is scored 0 points.

The QSO will be scored 0 points for the participant who made this type of errors:

  • wrong serial number
  • wrong QTH locator
  • or incorrect callsign reception (with or without /p)
