Multi operators, multi bands, multi modes : The participants in this category can work in all bands and modes at the same time.

The score calculation is based on geographical distance. The basis of calculation is as below as per IARU Registration;
The final score is sum of all points gained per band and per mode.

Participant YM7KA who is located at KN90UX, made 2 QSOs in 433.500 mhz with YM7KO (located at KN80XP) and with YM6KA (located at KN81DG)
The program which calculates the distance between the locators is available in the internet.
The participants can operate with their individual callsigns or with their club station callsigns. The club stations with multi operators can operate with individual callsigns or club callsigns. The individual operator member callsigns should be marked on the certificates of the club stations who participate with multi operators. The participants have to note the LOCATOR information on the logs for each QSO. If the stations are operating in the field (away from their QTH), they should specify that they are portable. In club station participation with multi operators, the individual callsigns of the participant members should be noted down on the log additional information part when sending the logs with e-mail.
During the QSO the following information must be exchanged and noted by both stations : UTC, Callsign, RST send/receive, Locator info, QSO sequence number. There is no exception to this condition. The sequence number is given regardless of the contacted station being local or foreign. The sequence numbers are given by regular order in a row, like 001,002, 003,004....
For the QSOs made by foreign stations, the sequence numbers given by them will be noted if it is given by the participating foreign station. The TA participants have to give regular sequence numbers although if the foreign station does not give a sequence number.
There may be other contests in the same day in other countries. For each band and mode, there will be a separate sequence number given. Please do not mix your logs. To prevent confusion, we suggest that you keep separate log pages for each band and mode. In total the participants can operate in 5 different categories (in 2 bands - 2m&70cm- and in 3 modes -SSB-CW-FM-)
