First three winners will be awarded small prizes and each participant will receive a contest diploma with his/her classification and a list of paricipants with their results.

In Part 1 listen please to any BC station of the contest country or a relay, for 15 minutes at least. For one country one log only. No unofficial, pirate or clandestine stations!

Scoring: 1000 points of each logged country will be divided by the total number of all logs of the particular country and rounded to two decimal places.

In Part 2 you can add other points to your score by listening to any DX programme. The number of DX programmes is limited to 4! All countries are allowed. Scoring in the same way as in Part 1, however, maximum point value 100 points for one DX programme and 50 points for other log(s) from the same country made by the same listener.

In Part 3 you can even further raise your score if you answer correctly the quiz questions. All correct answers = 200 points = 20% to your total score from parts 1 + 2.

Example: 86 points = +8.6%, 148 points = +14.8% to your score in Part 1, etc.

Note: Please give sufficient details in your logs to be validated! Logs with general notes, such as “music”, “male talk” cannot be accepted.

We wish you good listening!
