Period: from 00.00 UTC of 31st May 2007 to 24.00 UTC of 1st June 2008

Bands: 50 Mhz and up, only via Moon reflection

Modes: those modes in which message decoding is charged to a computer, whilst validation and qso management are made by the human operator.


Following present custom for digital modes, "self spotting" ONLY is allowed also during the contest, with whatever means (Internet, Packet etc.). The purpose of "self spotting" is limited to making known the tx frequency, this particularly as an aid to small stations.

Instead, being a contest, certain friendly customs, like giving informations during and after a qso, sending thanks, proposing skeds etc., ARE NOT PERMITTED since they would represent an additional help to what must be or has been made through the EME path.

Coherently we invite third parties, who may be monitoring qsos, to abstain from making known any type of information since this would invalidate the qso, up to this point correctly made by the interested parties.

In case of protests, the decisions of the contest manager are final and unappealable.

Categories for bands 144 and 432 MHz:

Stations are subdivided by power and type of antenna employed. For yagis the total lenght, in wavelenghts, is considered (distance reflector-last director multiplied by the number of yagis in the array), for parabolic reflectors the dish diameter is considered.

At 144MHz 1 wl = 2,08 meters = 82" = 6' 10"
At 432 MHz 1 wl = 0.694 meters = 27".340

Band 144 MHz (Cat. A, B, C, D, E, F)

Note: Stations with cross yagis or circular polarization are classified separately. For cross yagis counts the sum of the lenght of the longest ones, either H or V.

Yagi                                 Dish              Power   < 350W          >350W
up to 5 wl                                                       A                      B
>5 wl,up to 10 wl            <7m (23')             B                      C
>10 wl,up to 20 wl            <10m (33')             C                      D
>20 wl,up to 40 wl            >10m (33')             D                      E
over 40 wl                         >14m (46')             E                      F 

Band 432 MHz (A, B, C, D, E):

Yagi                                 Dish              Power   <250W          >250W
up to 18 wl                                                      A                      B
>18 wl,up to 36 wl            <3,05m (10')                   B                      C
>36 wl,up to 72 wl            <4,57m (15')                   C                      D
over 72 wl                         >4,57m (14')                   D                      E

Bands 50 MHz, 1,3 GHz and up:

One category per band, independently from power and antenna.


If the first of each category scores less than the first of the lower category, the whole category is moved into the lower.

Points for 2-way qsos:

10 points; 31 points with italian stations. Between italian stations 10 points.

Assisted and not-assisted are not separated.

Italian stations (and foreign stations operating in Italy) will be classified separately from the rest of the world.


The station heard can be inserted as correspondent twice maximum. Points: 10 for each station heard in qso, 31 if italian.


To the first of each category. A certificate will be sent to all the partecipants who sent in the log. If somebody wins more than one category, he gets only one prize and certificates for the other categories won, while the prize for these categories goes to the second placed and will be so inscribed.


It can be sent also by e-mail to Этот адрес e-mail защищен от спам-ботов. Чтобы увидеть его, у Вас должен быть включен Java-Script  or Этот адрес e-mail защищен от спам-ботов. Чтобы увидеть его, у Вас должен быть включен Java-Script ,  (will be confirmed upon reception), or by mail to Mario Alberti - Via Privata Maralunga 12 - 19126 La Spezia - Italy.

Logs should be sent within 30 days from the contest.

The log must contain a general section with Call, Name, Adress (including e-mail or packet or telephone if possible), QTH Locator, Band, Cathegory, PA Power, Antenna dimensions and type.

The qso log must contain Date, Hour, Mode, Call, Points, and Total Points.


Comments and other info are welcome.
