- Phone and CW and SSB will be scored as separate contests. Digital contacts (RTTY, PSK31, etc) count as CW. Submit separate logs for each contest.
- All YLs within one of the U.S. ARRL sections or within a Canadian province shall score one point for each QSO with another station located within a section or province."
- Score two points for each contact with a station not located within an ARRL section or province or on another continent, i.e., DX. (DX stations are defined as those not located within an ARRL section or province.)
- Multiply the number of QSOs by the total number of different ARRL sections/VE provinces/countries worked. A multiplier is counted only once in each mode (ie SSB, CW).
- Contestants running 5W or less will be considered QRP and earn a power factor of 3. Contestants running 5W to 100W will be considered low power and earn a power factor of 1.5. Contestants running over 100W will be high power. If no transmitter power is listed on logs, no power factor will be given.
All logs must show your ARRL section/VE province/country to qualify for awards.
Logs must show the station worked, QSO number, RS(T) given and received, ARRL section/VE province/country of the station worked.
The time, band, date and transmitter power should also be included. Logs must also state the power output used and the operating breaks taken. If you have 200 or more QSOs, submit a separate log for each band and submit a "dupe" sheet.
Remember to file separate logs for each mode. Logs must show claimed score. All logs go to the current YLRL Vice President and must be submitted within 30 days of contest ends.
We are working on getting it set up so that you can use cabrillo format which is supported by every contest log software including N3FJP and N1MM.
