In the SSB/CW section, a station may be worked on both modes provided it remains in the same county/DXCC entity.
Maximum output power of 100 watts PEP
Signal report, serial number (starting 001 for the first contact) and county e.g. 59 001 WIC.
(See the County Codes / General Rules) DX Stations send signal report & serial number only
CW 3510 – 3560; SSB 3600 – 3650 & 3700 – 3775 CW centre of activity: 3522
(Note: The scoring rules mean that an EI or GI station must be at one or both ends of a QSO)
Stations in EI/GI:
• Any County in EI/GI
• Contacts outside EI/GI
The final score is the total QSO points multiplied by the number of EI/GI counties plus DXCC entities outside EI/GI worked
DX Stations (outside EI/GI):
• Each contact with EI/GI
The final score is the total QSO points multiplied by the number of EI/GI counties worked
In the SSB/CW sections, for multiplier purposes counties and DXCC entities only count once
QSOs with Bonus Station During 2022, the special event call sign EI90IRTS will be active (as a checklog entry) in a number of IRTS contests.
QSOs with this station are worth double points, along with the relevant county multiplier.
Note that two separate EI90IRTS stations may be activated – one each for SSB and CW: if these two stations are in different counties, the county multiplier for both stations will be available.
