HIGH Power - the output power shall not exceed 100 watts; LOW Power - the output power shall not exceed 10 watts.
There are two separate groups of entrants - EU Stations and DX Stations. SINGLE-OP - Those stations at which one performs all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. Only one signal is allowed at any one time. SINGLE-OP ALL ... - The operator may change bands at any time. MULTI-ONE - Multi operator, single transmitter, all bands. Only one transmitter and one band permitted at any one time. The output power shall not exceed 100 watts. The station must operate all 24 hours. MULTI-MULTI - Multi operator, multi transmitter, all bands. Two or more operators with two or more transmitters on the air at one time is allowed. The output power shall not exceed 100 watts. The station must operate all 24 hours. Only one signal (and running station) allowed per band at any time. In addition to the main MULTI-ONE and MULTI-MULTI categories, participants can apply in the following categories: JUNIOR - All operators must be 18 years old or younger. To do this, they must specify JUNIOR in the CATEGORY-OVERLAY line of the log header. All entrants must clearly indicate the output power (watts) in the Cabrillo log. If no power is mentioned in the log the participant's score will be moved to High Power category automatically.
Same station may be worked once per band.
EU stations: RST + EU Area Code. See EU Area List (example for the County of Sisak and Moslavina, Croatia: 599 EUHRSM). Please note that "dots" should not be sent! 599 EU.HR.SM or 599 EU HR SM - are not correct reports. There should be no "dots", no "spaces" between the letters, all 6 letters should be sent together. Those who don't follow this rule will be disqualified immediately! DX stations: RST + QSO number, starting 001. Multi Multi DX stations should use a separate serial number sequence for each band.
|Points for QSO:
1 point per QSO between stations in the same DXCC Country; 2 points per QSO between stations on the same continent but different DXCC Countries; 3 points per QSO between stations on different continents; 3 points per QSO with maritime mobile. Only for DX stations: 5 points per QSO with EU stations.
Each different DXCC Country + each different EU Area on each band. Maritime mobile stations are not the multipliers.
The final score is the result of the total QSO points multiplied by the sum of your EU Area and DXCC Country multipliers.
Log Instructions: All times must be in UTC. All sent and received exchanges are to be logged. PSK mode in Cabrillo file must be identified as follows: BPSK63 - PM. All QSOs in the Cabrillo report should be arranged all chronologically! The Contest Committee accepts logs in the Cabrillo format ONLY. Name your Cabrillo file as your call sign (for example - MM0EPC.cbr, MM0EPC.txt or MM0EPC.log). File name of the file MUST NOT CONTAIN characters of national encodings. The contest name in the Cabrillo header must be EU-PSK-DX. Electronic submission implies a signed declaration that all contest rules and regulations for amateur radio in the country of operation have been observed. Use our Cabrillo sample file as a standard entry log file for the EU PSK DX Contest. - Check your log before you submit it. Better if you check it twice. - Never create your "own" category. The only allowed categories are those listed in the Rules. - Take few minutes to understand how the Cabrillo header must be filled. - Don't trust blindly to the generated log that your software provides. - Please contact us if you do not receive our confirmation within 48 hours after the log submission.
|Sending of electronic logs:
You should upload your log via Web interface.
All logs must be sent no later than 5 days after the contest.
Certificates will be awarded in all categories. First, Second and Third place certificates will be awarded in the World and every Continent (Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, and Oceania). First place certificates will be awarded in every participating DXCC country. All scores will be published on the EPC website. In DXCC Countries where the returns justify, second and third place awards will be made. All certificates will be issued to the licensee of the station used. The certificates will be issued in a high printing resolution PDF format, and will be available at the EPC Member Centre for downloading. Any radio amateur, radio club or commercial organization can act by the official sponsor of the EU PSK DX Contest. If someone is interested in sponsoring a Special Trophy for the contest, please contact the Contest Committee.
