Classification SEPARATELY for the Eurasian continent in the following geolocations: ZONE "A": - Europe (all stations located on the European continent). ZONE "B": - Ural, Siberia (stations from the Asian part of Russia located in ITU zones 20-22, 30-32); - Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan); - Middle East and South Asia (Asian stations located in ITU zones 29, 39, 40-42). ZONE "C": - Far East, Japan, China and Southeast Asia (Asian stations located in ITU zones 23-26, 33-35, 43-45, 49, 50, 54). Separate ABSOLUTE classification among stations that are not related to Eurasia – only in the categories of SINGLE-OP and MULTI-ONE. Separate scoring (without awards) is offered to each QTH-locator. For example, sector JO, KO, KP, etc.)
The scoring time for all SINGLE-OP categories of participants is 6 hours. Breaks are allowed during the contest period, duration of at least 1 hour. Thus, each participant can choose at their own discretion any 6 hours to set off from 9 hours, during where the contest is held. MULTI-ONE category stations may operate entire 9 hours of the contest. The output power of the transmitter on any band must not exceed that specified in the license and correspond to selected category. There are no restrictions on the number of band changes. It is allowed to have a single transmitted signal at any time. Only a single call sign is allowed. The use of help or information from third parties for the purpose of establishing a QSO during the contest is prohibited, except for the use of open networks (DX clusters, local or remote recognition technology call sign and frequency - skimmers).
Stations may be contacted twice on each band CW and SSB.

|Points for QSO:
QSO points are awarded based on the distance between correspondents, 1 point for each full kilometer. - For QSO on 160m over 500 km: for every 500 km, an additional 10% is charged. - For QSO on 80m over 1000 km: for every 1000 km, an additional 10% is charged. - For a QSO at 10m at a distance of 100 km to 800 km, points are multiplied by 10. - For QSO at 15m at a distance of 100 km to 800 km, points are multiplied by 5. Example of scoring points: QSO between RT8U and R7AT. The distance between correspondents is 3435 km. For QSO on 10, 15, 20 and 40m = 3435 points; For QSO at 80m: 3435 x (1 + 0.3) = 4465 points (i.e. + 30% for 3000 km = 3x1000km); For QSO at 160m: 3435 x (1 + 0.6) = 5496 points (i.e. + 60% for 3000 km = 6x500km); QSO between RT8U and UC0A. The distance between correspondents is 354 km. For QSO on 20, 40, 80 and 160m = 354 points; For QSO on 15m: 354 x 5 = 1770 points; For QSO on 10m: 354 x 10 = 3540 points. For each new 4-digit locator (for example, KO91, KO92...), an additional 1000 bonus points are awarded once for all the time of the contest.
The multiplier is each large QTH locator (the first two letters of the locator, for a QTH locator MO16TB is the multiplier is MO) CW and SSB on each band. Thus, each large QTH locator can be a multiplier of 12 times – 6 times CW and 6 times SSB for the entire time of the contest.
The final score is the Sum of QSO points and bonus points multiplied by the total multipliers.
Logs are accepted only in electronic form in CABRILLO format. In the LOCATION line of the log header, participants specify their full QTH locator (6 characters). For SINGLE-OP category participants: - When total operating time does not exceed 6 hours in duration; and when each of the breaks taken is no less than 1 hour, there is no need to show the times of these breaks. For example: when you made a QSO at 10.00 UTC and took a break, your next QSO can be made no earlier than 11.01 UTC. If you made your next QSO at 11.00 UTC, your entire break equals 59 minutes. That entire time would be counted towards your operating time and not the break. - When your total operating time exceeds 6 hours in duration you must indicate periods you wish to delete from the scoring of your log. This non-scoring time must be clearly listed in the station data under the OFFTIME. The number of OFFTIME lines must equal the number of breaks. OFFTIME need not display the time before the first QSO and time after the last QSO were made. How to Complete the OFFTIME entry: OFFTIME: 2021-02-06 1000 2021-02-06 1059 This example shows a participant who had a break from 10:00 UTC until 10:59 UTC. Prior to taking a break, the last QSO must be made no later than 09:59 UTC and the first contact after the break – no earlier than 11:00 UTC. Each brake is to be listed separately, on its own line - When the participant operated over 6 hours and failed to indicate which contacts should NOT be counted towards the score, his log will be scored from the first contact he made until the last QSO within 6 hours (i.e. first 6 hours). The rest of the contacts would not count. Programs that support contest 1. N1MM Logger+ - starting from version 1.0.8170. (TNX Nick, NA3M) 2. 5MContest - starting from 7.0.8. (TNX Vitaly, RM5F) 3.

|Sending of electronic logs:
Web upload of logs is available at Web interface.
Deadlines for log submissians are 5 days.
ALL PARTICIPANTS will be awarded an electronic certificate. Winners in EACH SCORING ZONE and in all bands subgroups are awarded with the winner's plaques - "EURASIA CHAMPION". The award is made if logs from at least 10 participants are received in the scoring subgroup. Winners in EACH SCORING ZONE and in single band subgroups are awarded with the winner's certificates - "EURASIA CHAMPION". Every participant who conducted no less than 100 QSOs and submitted their log in a timely manner qualifies for souvenir medal "EURASIA CHAMPIONSHIP MEDAL" (fees apply). Every participant who conducted no less than 300 QSOs and submitted their log in a timely manner qualifies for memorial plaque "EURASIA CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY" (fees apply). Participants who are OUTSIDE of Eurasia are awarded commemorative plaques for absolutely the best result in single-OP and MULTI-ONE categories. Given outside sponsorship, contest organizers reserve the right to award Single Band category winners and institute additional nomination categories prior to the contest. Awardees will be listed at the Contest website, under the "Awards" tab. Each participating station is entitled to no more than one award. If a participant is recognized as "top" in the additional nomination, then the second best station in the same category received that award also.
|Rule Violations, Penalties and Declaration:
Submitted logs will be scored by the judges. They will also use computer modeling to recreate logs of the stations that had not submitted them. QSOs are not counted in the following cases: - if QSO is not confirmed by the correspondent's log; - if there are distortions in the callsigns, the QSO time diverges by more than 3 minutes, the band is not correctly specified, or the mode - QSO is not counted for both correspondents, unless it is a systematic error of one of them correspondents, in this case, the QSO is not counted to the participant who made a systematic mistake; - if the log is not received from the correspondent and the correspondent is unique (the call sign occurs less than in 3 logs); If one of the correspondents made a mistake in the accepted exchange, then the correspondents they are fined 50% of points for QSOs, and the multiplier (bonus) for such QSOs is not counted. For QSOs with stations from which logs are not received, unless a receive error is detected in these QSOs, 50% of the total points for QSOs are awarded, and the multiplier (bonus) for such QSOs is counted.
