d) Multi-Operator Single TX stations must adhere to the 10 minutes rule (both runner and multiplier station). Only one band can be used within a 10 minutes period, while another band can be used only to work a new multiplier. The 10 minutes period starts when the first QSO is logged on that band. QSO in violation of the 10 minutes rule should be left in the log and they will be automatically deleted by the Committee but no extra penalties will be applied. Be aware that an excessive number of violations may lead to the disqualification of the entry.

e) LOW POWER category entrants can use 100W maximum total output power.

f) It is forbidden the dual-CQ on the same band.

g) For Multi-Operator Multi-TX stations only one transmitted signal per band is permitted.

5. Bands: Bands from 10m through 80m, except WARC bands, are allowed according to IARU Band Plans.

6. Exchange: Italian stations will send RST and two letters to identify their province. Other stations will send RST and a serial number from 001. The serial number will NOT restart from 001 on each band/mode except for the Multi-Operator Multi TX stations. Multi-Operator Multi TX stations will have separate serial number for each band.
