Mode

SSB,CW,FM IARU Region 1 band plan

Categories

1Single operator,single band,single mode SSB (6m,2m ,70cm)

2Single operator,multi bands,multi modes SSB,CW,FM (6m,2m,70cm)

  1. Multi operators,multiband,multi modes

Exchange

RS or RST (59 or 599), for every band and mode a sequence number starting from 001 and WWQTH locator (6 characters) will be exchanged (e.g. 59 123 KN90UX).

Score Calculation

The score calculation is based on geographical distance. The basis of calculation is as below as per IARU Registration;

  • 50 -52 MHz = 1 Point/km (1point per km)
  • 144-146 MHz = 1 point/km (1 point per km)
  • 430-440 MHz = 2 points/km (2 points per km)

The final score is sum of all points gained per band and per mode.

Conditions and Logging

  1. QSOs made through repeaters and echolink are not accepted.
  2. The foreign stations who participate in single operator category & who would like to send their logs, should have a

       minimum of 20 TA QSOs in their 6m records.  Multi op. 30 TA qso Require.

       minimum of 5  TA QSOs in their records. 2M and 70 cm , Multi op. 8 QSO Require
       records.

1If possible, logs should be prepared in EDI Format. The below log form may also be used.

  1. In each band and mode, there is a separate scoring system. Every QSO made In each band and mode counts as 1 point per km in 6m, 2m and counts as 2 points per km in 70cm.

Example 1

Participant YM7KA who is located at KN90UX, made 2 QSOs in 6m or 2m with YM7KO (located at KN80XP) and with YM6KA (located at KN81DG)

  • The distance between KN90UX and KN80XP is = 152 kms
  • The distance between KN90UX and KN81DG is = 289 kms
  • (1 x km) 1 x 441 = 441 points

Example 2

Participant YM7KA who is located at KN90UX, made 2 QSOs in 70cm  with YM7KO (located at KN80XP) and with YM6KA (located at KN81DG)

  • The distance between KN90UX and KN80XP is = 152 kms
  • The distance between KN90UX and KN81DG is = 289 kms
  • (1 x km) 2 x 441 = 882 points

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 6m SSB-CW-FM, 2 bands SSB-CW-FM  - 70c SSB-CW-FM in 3 Band-3 Modes --)

The logs can be sent latest by 31st of July 2019

Each participants log should be sent separately

E-Mail must have call signe of mail sender ,,as TA7…EDI veya TA7..xsl .
