 1. Aim of the contest:
    The aims of the contest are to promote amateur radio activity
    within Scandinavia as well as to encourage amateur radio
    communications between Scandinavian and non-Scandinavian amateur
    radio stations. Non-Scandinavian stations will try to work as many
    Scandinavian stations as possible.
    Scandinavian stations are defined by prefixes as follows:
      ï JW ......................... Svalbard and Bear Island
      ï JX ......................... Jan Mayen
      ï LA - LB - LG - LJ - LN ..... Norway
      ï OF - OG - OH - OI .......... Finland
      ï OFÿ - OGÿ - OHÿ ............ Aland Islands
      ï OJÿ ........................ Market Reef
      ï OX - XP .................... Greenland
      ï OW - OY .................... Faroe Islands
      ï 5P - 5Q - OU - OV - OZ ..... Denmark
      ï 7S - 8S - SA - SB - SC
        SD - SE - SF - SG - SH
        SI - SJ - SK - SL - SM ..... Sweden
      ï TF ......................... Iceland
    All other legal prefixes according to the ITU definition of
    Scandinavian prefixes are good for the contest and multipliers
    as well.
 2. Eligible entrants:
    Radio amateurs and SWLís all over the world are invited to
 3. Periods:
     CW: 3rd full weekend of September each year.
    SSB: 4th full weekend of September each year.
    Starts 1200 UTC Saturday and ends 1200 UTC Sunday.
 4. Sections:
    a) Single Op./Single TX/Multi Band - High Power
       Single Op./Single TX/Multi Band - Low Power (output 100 W or less)
       Single Op./Single TX/Multi Band - QRP (output 5 W or less)
       Single operator means that one person performs all operating,
       logging and spotting functions without any assistance from other
       person(s). The use of DX-Cluster is not allowed.
       Asking and begging stations to announce own call in DX-Cluster
       is NOT allowed.
    b) Multi Op./Single TX/Multi Band
       Only one signal may be transmitted on any band at any time
       (running station). When operation has started on one band, the
       station must remain on that band for at least 10 minutes. The 10
       minutes-period starts with the first QSO worked on that band.
       Exception: It is allowed to work a station on another band if it
       is a new multiplier (multiplier station). The multiplier station
       is allowed to be on the air at the same time as the running
       station. The multiplier station must also stay on the
       "multiplier band" at least 10 minutes. This rule is similar to
       the CQ WW DX Contest.
       Use of multiplier spotting assistance from other persons than
       the station-operators is not allowed. However, DX-Clusters may
       be used by Multi Operator stations.
       Asking and begging stations to announce own call in DX-Cluster
       is NOT allowed.
    c) SWL - Single Operator/Multi Band
       Only Scandinavian stations may be logged for points.
       Scoring as for transmitting sections.
 5. Bands:
    3.5 - 7 - 14 - 21 - 28 MHz bands may be used according to IARU HF
    Band Plans.
    Operating Frequency suggestions Low Band SSB:
    7040-7090, 3600-3650 and 3700-3790 kHz.
    (Avoid operating on 7090-7100 and 3790-3800 kHz).
    (NB: 3560-3600, 3650-3700, 14060-14125 and 14300-14350 kHz
    to be kept free from contest traffic).
 6. Contest exchanges:
    The contest exchange consists of RS(T) plus serial number starting
    with 001 (e.g. 59(9)001).
    (QSOís after 999 are numbered 1000, 1001 etc). The same station may
    be worked once on each band. Cross-mode and/or cross-band QSOís are
    not allowed.
    The minimum content of a valid contest QSO is correct callsign and
    correct contest exchanges.
 7. Scoring:
    Two-way QSO with sent and received exchange counts for QSO-points.
    EUROPEAN stations credit their logs with one (1) point for every
    complete Scandinavian QSO on each band.
    NON-EUROPEAN stations credit their logs with one (1) point for
    every Scandinavian QSO on 14, 21 and 28 MHz and with three (3)
    points for complete QSO on 3.5 and 7 MHz bands.
 8. Multipliers:
    Worked call-number areas (ÿ-9) in each Scandinavian country are
    valid as multiplier on each band. (e.g. SI3, SK3, SL3, SM3, 7S3
    and 8S3 are all in ONE district and counts ONE (1) multiplier on
    each band).
    Portable stations without a district number count for the 10th area
    (e.g. LA/G3XYZ counts for LAÿ). OHÿ (Aland Is.) and OJÿ (Market
    Reef) are separate call areas. SJ9 and SI9 counts for the 9th
    district in Sweden.
 9. Final score:
    To calculate the final score, multiply the sum of QSO-points on all
    bands with the sum of multipliers worked on all bands.
10. Logs:
    Signed original logs (or copies of original logs) must be submitted
    separately for CW and SSB. Single operator and multi-single logs
    must be submitted in chronological order.
    Logs to be filled in the following order: Date and time UTC, Band,
    Station worked, Exchange sent, Exchange received, Multipliers
    (e.g. OZ4, SM3, SM4, OH2 etc) and Points.
    SWL-log must contain: Date and time UTC, Band, Scandinavian station
    heard, Message sent by Scandinavian station, SWLís own report,
    Station worked by Scandinavian station, Multipliers and Points.
      All entries must be followed by a summary sheet showing station
      callsign, contest category, name of operator(s) and address.
      Indicate number of QSOís per band less duplicates, number of
      duplicates per band, multipliers per band, QSO-points per band
      and final score. A Single Op. log not showing the power category
      will be counted as High Power.
      All entrants must submit a multiplier check list for each band
      with more than 200 QSOís.
      Possible duplicate QSOís must be shown in the log and counted for
      zero (0) points. Each entrant shall submit a duplicate check list
      for each band with more than 200 QSOís. Duplicate check list to
      contain worked stations listed e.g. by DXCC-entities and call
      Electronic submission of logs is encouraged - and in fact
      required - for all top scoring entrants and all who use a
      computer to log or prepare the logs. The CABRILLO format is
      preferred. Please ensure that you fill out all of the header
      information. If you submit a CABRILLO log, no additional summary
      sheet is required. (However, if you like to compare your claimed
      scores with others before the final results are published, you
      are encouraged to enclose your summary sheet as well).
        For more information on the CABRILLO format:
      If you cannot submit a CABRILLO log, you may submit the ASCII
      output from most of the popular logging programs such as LAÿFX,
      NA, OH2GI, SD, TR and Writelog. If the log is not in CABRILLO
      format, a separate summary sheet is required. Please name your
      files with yourcall and the file type.
      Example: AA1AA submits a CABRILLO file. It should be named
      AA1AA.LOG. If AA1AA chose to submit a non CABRILLO file such as
      TRís .dat file, he should name the log file AA1AA.DAT and the
      summary file should be AA1AA.SUM.
      Logs sent on disk should be on 3.5", 1.44 Mb disks.
      Logs submitted via e-mail should in the Subject: line include
      mode (CW or SSB), your callsign and the category you are
      entering, e.g., SOMBHP, SOMBLP, MOST, etc.
      All logs received via e-mail will be confirmed via e-mail.
      Basic rules: Only one QSO on each line. Each line must contain
      following information: Date and Time (full) UTC, Band, Mode,
      Station worked, Sent (full) exchange, Received (full) exchange,
      Multiplier (if applicable) and Points (dupes to be marked with
      (0) zero).
      Computerized logs must be checked for typing accuracy. Please
      leave all your QSOís in the log, dupes included. The log checking
      software will find the dupes and mark them with zero points.
      If you send log on disc, paper log is not mandatory. Summary
      sheet must always be on paper (not when using e-mail). Disc must
      be clearly labelled with call, contest name, class and date of
      the contest. CW and SSB portion can be on same disc. Please use
      file-names like: AA1AA.DAT or AA1AA.CW or AA1AA.SSB and AA1AA.SUM
11. Declaration:
    With her/his signature on the summary sheet, the participant
    declares that all the rules are observed and that the station was
    operated in accordance with the rules and regulations for amateur
    radio stations in the country of the participant.
12. Address for logs:
    The arrangement of the contest alternates between SRAL, SSA, NRRL,
    and EDR in that order. For correct address, see the heading.
    E-mail 2009 CW logs to:
    E-mail 2009 SSB logs to:
13. Closing date for logs:
    Logs and accompanying control-sheets, addressed to the organizing
    Society, shall be mailed not later than October 31st the year of
    the contest.
14. Awards:
      The top scoring High Power and Low Power station in each country
      as well as in each US call area, in each category, both CW and
      SSB, will receive a Contest Award, provided a reasonable score is
      QRP operators will be listed in one common list for all
      The top scoring Single Operator (QRO) station on each continent
      may be awarded a Contest Plaque provided a reasonable score is
      The top scoring station outside Scandinavia will receive an
      Depending on the number of participants, the Contest Committee
      may consider additional awards.
15. Dispute:
    Violation of Amateur Radio Regulations in the country of the
    contestant or of the rules for this contest, unsportsmanlike
    conduct and the taking of credit for unverifiable QSOís or
    multipliers may lead to disqualification.
    Each unmarked duplicate QSO found by the Contest Committee will
    result in a penalty of five (5) QSOís of same value as the
    duplicate. A log showing more than one (1) percent unmarked
    duplicate QSOís will be disqualified unconditionally.
    The decisions by the Contest Committee are final and definite.
    Right to changes in this rules are reserved.
