1. Contest period: 1500Z December 30th to 1500Z December 31st, 2006. Operate for a maximum of 14 hours. Off times are 30 minutes minimumand a maximum of four off periods are permitted.

2. Bands and mode: 160 meters CW only.

3. Categories: Single operator or multi-operator. Remote or Cluster spotting shall not be used. All transmitting and receiving antennas used must be within 100 km of each other.

4. Exchange: Four character grid square (i.e. CN85).

5. QSO Points: The number of QSO points for each contact depends on the distance between the two stations. This is computed by taking the distance between the centers of the two grid squares. Count a minimum of one point per QSO and an additional point for every 500 kilometers distance. For example, a QSO with a station 1750 kilometers away will count for 4 QSO points. No additional distance for long path is allowed.

QSO Points are multiplied by 2X if you work a low power station and 4X for working a QRP station. This is done based upon received logs and is computed automatically during the log checking process.

Do not worry if your logging software does not compute the QSO points. Our automated log checking software does this.

6. Score: Final score equals the total number of QSO points. There is no multiplier for different grids worked. Stations running 5 to 100 watts output multiply their score by 2. Stations running less than 5 watts multiply their score by 4. Scores will be grouped by category.

7. Reporting: Your log can be sent via the internet to TBDC@CONTESTING.COM using the Cabrillo format before January 31st, 2007. Paper entries can be mailed to BARC 15125 SE Bartell Rd; Boring, OR 97009. If possible, please provide an electronic copy of your log. You can use the tool INSTEW.EXE to generate a Cabrillo log from your paper log. It can be found at
