|1) Object: Contact and exchange QSO information with as many
stations as possible using RTTY only. Any station may work any other
2) Contest Period: December 5, 1998 (Saturday) From: 18:00 UTC until 02:00 UTC Dec 6.
3) Modes: RTTY only!
4) Bands: All amateur bands 3.5-30 Mhz (excluding 10,18 and 24MHz).
5) Entry Categories:
(A) Single Operater, multiband - One person performs all operating and logging functions. Use of spotting nets (operating arrangments involving assistance through DX-alerting nets, etc.) is not permitted. Single operator stations are allowed only one transmitted signal at any given time.
1) less than 150 W output
(B) Multi operator, single transmitter only - More than one person operates, checks for duplicates, keeps the log, etc. Once the station has begun operation on a given band, it must remain on that band for at least 10 minutes; listening time counts as operating time. Multioperator stations are allowed only one transmitted signal at any given time.
US: signal report and state.
Both stations must receive and acknowledge the complete exchange for the contact to count.
(A) QSO Points: Count one point for each completed QSO (anyone can work anyone). A station may be worked once per band for QSO credit (but not for additional multipliers).
(B) Multiplier: Count only once (not once per band), each US state (except KH6 and KL7), each VE province (plus VE8 and VY1) and each DXCC country. KH6 and KL7 count only as seperate DXCC countries. The US and Canada do not count as DXCC countries.
(A) The use of non-Amateur Radio means of communication (eg, telephone) for the purpose of soliciting a contact (or contacts) during the contest period is inconsistent with the spirit and intent of this announcement.
(A) Entries must be postmarked no later than 41 days after the end of the contest: January 16, 1999.
Any entry making more than 200 total QSO's must submit duplicate check sheets (an alphabetical listing of stations worked). No late entries can be accepted. Use ARRL RTTY Roundup forms, a reasonable facsimile or submit entry on diskette or electronically. Send entries to:
