RU-QRP members multi-operators send his member’s number plus one letter from F.I.E.L.D. word. “Home” operators (as like as returned to home “Field” operators) only send  D letter. Operators from the field send letter from the F.I.E.L. word (except D). You can change a letter only after 10 consequtive QSOs with this letter. Returning to a new  F.I.E.L. series is only possible after complete all 4-letters sending, so only after the 40 QSO (10 QSO “F” + 10 QSO “I” + 10 QSO “E” + 10 QSO “L”, after this you can again start new F.I.E.L. serie with letter F). Letter order is fixed – “F.I.E.L.

Example: UR5LAM de RK4FB ur 579/086/i. Or: RK4FB de RX3ALL ur RST 579 my RUQRP nr 79/E

During QSO you can exchange with other information (name, QTH, operating conditions, etc.) Duplicate QSOs are allowed on different bands and with different modes. And on the same band and the same mode, if you or other station has changed a letter. You can inform about your letter change with a call like this: “CQ RF/F”.

– For each QSO with RU-QRP Club member – additionally 5 points;
– For each full F.I.E.L.D. letters set – addiionally 20 points.

During the game insufficient letter from the F.I.E.L.D. set is possible to substitute from one of your letters with 10 QSOs. For example let assume that you are maked a 10 QSOs sending a letter “L”. So, you are able to substitute an insufficient letter with one “L”.

Final result is a sum: points for QSOs + RU-QRP members points + F.I.E.L.D. points.
