1.  The European PSK Club has the honour to invite the radio amateurs all over the world to participate in the CIS DX PSK Contest 2011.
The objective of the contest is to establish as many QPSK63 contacts as possible between radio amateurs around the world and  radio
amateurs in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Everybody can work everybody for QSO and multiplier credit.

2.  The  CIS  DX  PSK  Contest  is  held  every  year  on  the  third  weekend  of  September.  This  year  it  starts  at  12:00  UTC  on  Saturday  17th
September, 2011 and ends at 12:00 UTC on Sunday 18th September, 2011.

3.  All contacts should be made by using QPSK63 mode (Quadrature Phase Shift Keying at 62.5 Baud Rate). According to the EPC HF Band
Plan it is recommended to use the following frequencies for contacts during the contest: 1.838 … 1.843 MHz, 3.580 … 3.590 MHz, 7.040
… 7.050 MHz, 14.070 … 14.080 MHz, 21.070 … 21.080 MHz, and 28.070 … 28.080 MHz. All operators may change bands at any time.

4.  Transceiver, computer, interface and antennas must be located within a 500 meter diameter circle or within the property limits of the
station licensee’s address, whichever is greater. All antennas used by the entrant must be physically connected by wires (cables) to the
transceivers used by the entrant. Only one transceiver is allowed to be used per participating call sign. Only one signal is allowed at
any one time.

5.  Only the entrant’s call sign can be used to aid the entrant’s score. A different call sign must be used for each  CIS DX QPSK63 Contest
entry. There are two separate groups of entrants – CIS Stations and DX Stations. CIS Stations are all those stations having the following
prefixes:  4J…4K,  EK,  ER,  EU…EZ,  R,  RA…RZ, U,  and  UA…UZ.  Every  group  of  entrants  (CIS  Stations  and  DX  Stations)  take  part  in  the
contest in 3 (three) categories listed below.

6.  SOHP Category – Those stations at which one performs all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. The output power shall not
exceed 100 watts.

7.  SOLP Category – Those stations at which one performs all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. The output power shall not
exceed 10 watts.

8.  MOST  Category  –  Those  stations  at  which  a  few  operators  perform  all  of  the  operating,  logging,  and  spotting  functions.  The  output
power shall not exceed 100 watts.

9.  Every participant should send a correct RSQ report and his/her four-digit DXDA number. An example of an exchange for W6EPC from
the State of California is 599 2053. Maritime and aircraft mobile stations should send an RSQ report and four zeros, such as 599 0000.
You can find your correct DXDA number at the corresponding list [ ].

10.  CIS stations get 1 (one) point for any single QSO. DX stations get 3 (three) points for each contact with CIS station and 1 (one) point for
any single QSO with all other stations. QSOs with the same call sign are valid if they are made on different bands. All participants earn
a  multiplier of 1  (one)  for each  unique  DXDA territory worked  regardless of band. Maritime  and  aircraft mobile  stations are  not the
multipliers. The final score is the result of the total QSO points multiplied by the sum of the DXDA multipliers. Scoring is the same for
all stations.

11.  First, second, and third place certificates in PDF format will be awarded in each category in both groups of entrants – CIS Stations and
DX  Stations.  All  certificates  will be  issued  to  the  licensee  of  the  station used.  Any radio  amateur  or radio  club  can  act  by  the  official
sponsor of the CIS DX PSK Contest. If you are interested in sponsoring a special trophy for the contest, please contact the CIS DX PSK
Contest Committee.

12.  All times must be in UTC. All sent and received exchanges are to be logged.  The Contest Committee accepts logs in the Cabrillo format
only.  Name  your  Cabrillo  file  as  your  call  sign  (for  example  –  gm4agg.cbr  or  gm4agg.log).  You  should  send  your  log  via  e-mail  to  Please make  sure to put the  station  call  sign and your category in the «Subject» line of the message (for example –
GM4AGG  MOST).  Electronic  submission  implies  a  signed  declaration  that  all  contest  rules  and  regulations  for  amateur  radio  in  the
country  of  operation  have  been  observed.  The  Low  Power  stations  must  state  the  actual  maximum  output  power  used  during  the
contest in their Cabrillo logs. All logs must be emailed no later than 15 days after the contest.

13.  Violation of  amateur  radio regulations  in the  country  of  the  contestant, or the rules  of the  contest;  unsportsmanlike  conduct ;  taking
credit  for  excessive  unverifiable  contacts  or  unverifiable  multipliers  will  be  deemed  sufficient  cause  for  disqualification.  Incorrectly
logged  calls  or  numbers  will  be  counted  as  unverifiable  contacts  for  culprit  only.  The  use  by  an  entrant  of  any  non-amateur  means
such as telephones, telegrams, internet, or the use of packet to solicit contacts during the contest is unsportsmanlike and t he entry is
subject to disqualification. Actions and decisions of the CIS DX PSK Contest Committee are official and final.

14.  We recommend MixW software [ ] to be used in the contest. The required MixW contest setup files for easy and
correct operation in the event are listed at R3BB website [ ].
