Contest Exchange: RS (T) report, plus the sequential number of contacts, starting with n.001 for the first contact. Score: The final score is the result of the total QSO points CW, RTTY, SSB multiplied by the number of Jolly-station contacted. The Jolly-stationts IQ4FF will operate during the whole contest and each Station counts 100 multiplier points. Example 1: 7 QSO count 7 points A Jolly-Station counts 100 multiplier points Total 7x100 = 700 points. Example 2: 9 bilateral QSO count 9 points 2 Jolly-Stations count 200 points, which means 9x200= 1800 points. Example 3: 100 bilateral QSO count 100 points Without any Jolly-Station contacted, the total score is 100 points. QSO Points: Each Station can be contacted three (3) times on each band to get the QSO point: a QSO in CW, a QSO in RTTY and a QSO in SSB. All logged QSO, independently from zone, country or continent, count one point (1) . The placing on the graded list will be based on how many QSO have been logged, multiplied with the number of Jolly-Stations contacted. Independently from the operative mode, those who scored the greatest amount of points will enter the graded list. Multiplier: The Multiplier is a number that will be released from the IQ4FF Stations (ESS: 599 100). Each Station will be counted only once for each band.
