In case a participant is going to work in more bands (eg. 2m and 70cm etc) he has to submit separate logs by each band (EDI format can only contain a single band entry thus each band will be exported to separate EDI log). After submitting the first log the password given by the server has to be typed in as the subject for the consecutive log (eg. submitting log for 2m will be acknowledged by the server and password is given as : khj765m. While submitting email log for 70cm khj765m has to be typed in on the subject field). Same applies for inputting or submitting logs on the official website.

of final results:    The final result of contest will be announced in the web site www.mrasz.hu

Notes:

a) The maximum legal time discrepancy of logged contacts is three minutes. If it can be verified clearly by received logs which station’s fault is the logged time discrepancy then the contact made by this station would be considered faulty.

b) The logged but not scored duplicate contact won’t be qualified as an error and will not be penalized. Claiming points for a duplicate contact shall be penalized by deducting three times the number of points claimed for that duplicate contact from the score. Any entrant whose log has scored duplicate contacts more than 2% of its logged contacts number will be disqualified.

c) Contact with a station being in the same WW QTH locator counts one point.

d) In case of difference in logged QSO data, only the receiving station will lose the score of the given QSO.

e) All participants shall adhere to the rules prescribed in its license. Ignoring this may result in disqualification.

f) The decision of the contest committee is final.
