The exchanged code is composed of RS(T) + two numbers. That is the year the operator's amateur radio license was first issued regardless, whether it uses a given brand or another.
Multipliers are different two-digit numbers, meaning the last two digits of the year of the operator's first ever official amateur radio license. The multiplier is calculated only once per band, regardless of mode.
Each valid contact completed counts every (1) point regardless of mod. The same station can be processed once for each band and mode. The final score is the sum of the QSO points from all bands multiplied by the sum of the multipliers from all bands.
a) In categories with one mode (iba CW, cycling and running) can be done a maximum of ten (10) band changes at any hour (00 to 59 minutes)
b) In the mix mode categories (CW/SSB) can be done a maximum of ten (10) bands and modes at any hour of the hour (00 to 59 minutes. For example, five (5) bands plus five (5) change mode, where the band together with the mode change is counted as one (1) change.
c) Change band or mode after 10. band change / there will be fashion penalized QSO points and a multi-connection deduction for those QSOs at a particular hour.
All sent diaries in Cabrillo format must be uploaded from the Log Submission page at the latest 48 hours after the competition (Monday 23.59 UTC).
