3. Rules

3.1 For the purpose of the contest only one scoring per valid QSO with the same station can be logged in
each band.

3.2 During the European EME Contest dates & times, communication via the Earth-Moon-Earth path is
the only type of communication permitted by participants and stations worked.

3.3 During Contest time, it is not allowed to use other communications medium such as internet or
packet radio, to self spot, announce CQ frequency, make skeds, exchange any QSO progress info, con-
firm whether the QSO was valid or not.

3.4 Spotting other stations for activity reasons, is permitted.

3.5 If stations participating in the Contest choose to use ‘real time’ communication outside the Earth-
Moon-Earth path so as to solicit contacts for themselves, they are permitted to do so, only outside their
Contest participation time. In such a case, re-entering the Contest for the remaining of their respective
weekend, moon time, is not allowed.

3.6 Stations participating in the Microwave bands (2.3GHz and above) are permitted to announce their
time plan of proposed band segment activity, during times when they have no moon visibility.

3.7 Stations deviating from the rules are not eligible to submit logs for the European EME Contest.

4. Contest Exchange
For a valid EME QSO, both stations must have copied all of the following:

4.1 Both callsigns from the other station

4.2 Signal report from the other station (using TMO procedure or RST)

4.3 R, from the other station, to acknowledge complete copy of 4.1 & 4.2

5. Logs
Logs must be separate for each band, and should be in normal "logbook" format.
Top line: Your callsign, Band
Each QSO: Date/Time, Callsign, Report sent, Report received, Points, Multiplier
Bottom line: Total points, Total multipliers, Total claimed score.

6. QSO Points
100 points for each random QSO completed on 144/432/1296MHz.
10 points for each sked QSO completed on 144/432/1296MHz.
100 points for each random QSO completed on 2.3GHz or higher bands.
50 points for each sked QSO completed on 2.3GHz or higher bands.

7. Multipliers
Each different call prefix is a multiplier (e.g. DL1, DK9, SM2, S51, S54, G6, KM5, W5, JA6, VK4, WA6,
K6, PA1, PE1, etc). See example of WPX Contest rules for further details on prefix multipliers.

8. Total Scores
Single band score = [Total of QSO points] * [Total of multipliers].
There will be one QRP winner and one QRO winner on each band.
Multiband score = [(Total sum of points on 144-1296MHz) +
(2 * total sum of points on 2.3GHz or above)] * [Total sum of multipliers on all bands]
Multiband stations will also be listed as an entry on each separate band worked, and can also win single-
band awards.

9. Contest Entries
Copy of the log for each band with details of points, multipliers and total points.
The following information MUST also be included for each band:
1. Output power, transmit cable loss, antenna type and gain
2. Categories: QRO/QRP - single/multi operator - CW/SSB – DIG
