Ca amator de PSK31 imi notez aici (dupa originalul in PDF format), evenimentul si regulamentul!
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 [ http://www.eupsk.com/documents/dxda-list.xls ].
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
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
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
email@example.com 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 [ http://www.mixw.net ] 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 [ http://www.digitalrus.ru ].
