" R-CW-C RPX Сontest 2018 " Competition is organised by the Russian telegraphy club. Russia, Novosibirskaya oblast. Start: September 8, 2018, at 12.00 UTC End: September 8, 2018, at 15.59 UTC Modulation mode: CW Bands: 40 м, 20 м, 15 м, 10 м Members as well as guests of the Russian CW CLUB are invited to participate. Recommended frequencies: (7010-7040 KHz; 14010-14060 KHz; 21010-21060 KHz; 28010-28060 KHz) The maximum total operating ‘on-time' in all categories is 240 minutes. General call: "CQ RPX” SECTIONS: A. Stations, located in the territory of the Russian Federation: A1 Single operator - power more than 100 watts. A2. Single operator - power between 6 and 100 watts A3. Single operator - power up to 5 watts maximum B. Stations, located outside of the Russian Federation: B1. Single operator - power more than 100 watts. B2. Single operator - power between 6 and 100 watts B3. Single operator - power up to 5 watts maximum С. Multi-operator: Stations located inside or outside the territory of the Russian Federation - and all power categories. EXCHANGE: Participants send RST and serial number of QSO. POINTS: For each QSO with a station located in the territory of the Russian Federation all participants get 10 points. For each QSO with a station located beyond the territory of the Russian Federation all participants get 5 points. QSOs with the same stations are valid on different bands. MULTIPLIER: The multiplier is the number of different worked prefixes of stations located in the territory of the Russian Federation. Each Russian Federation PREFIX is counted only once, regardless of the band or number of contacts conducted with the same prefix. The definition of the prefix is given below in the "Note" section Total score The total score is calculated as the product of the accumulated points times by the multiplier. The participant's own total score calculation for their entry is optional. AWARDS All participants get diplomas in electronic form. ENTRIES Entries are accepted online in Cabrillo format. The subject line of the email one must show only the callsign.

Contacts with such stations are not valid, and points and multipliers cannot be claimed for them. COMMENTS: If the number of points is equal, the participant with a larger multiplier has the advantage. There are no limits for the number of band changes for any competitors. Contacts are not counted: - if there arecopiederrorsin callsigns, serial numbers, RST report; - if there is a difference in the time of the contact of more than 3 minutes; - if there are system errors in the entry (only for the transmitting party). NOTE The prefix is the letter / figure combinations that make up the first part of the radio amateur callsign. For example: R1, RA2, RL3, RM4, etc. Any difference in figures, letters or the order of their occurrence counts as separate prefix. In the case of temporary operation of a station from another country or amateur radio area, the identifier of the temporary QTH determines the prefix. For example: R8OA / 7 will count as R7, RM4C / 6 will count as RM6, etc. For QTH temporary identifiers which do not contain numbers, zero (0) is automatically added to create the prefix. Example: RA/UT3IZ will be counted as RA0. For Marine, mobile, / A, / E, / J, / P, or identifiers for the temporary owner of the station, identifiers are not counted as prefixes.
