The Makrothen Contest

Start: 2nd Full Weekend Saturday of October in 00:00 UTC (08 October, 2016 in 00:00)
Finish: Sunday in 15:59 UTC (09 October, 2016 in 15:59)
Modes: RTTY
Bands:
80m40m20m15m10m
Categories (classes):
- SINGLE-OP LOW
- SINGLE-OP HIGH
- MULTI-OP LOW
- MULTI-OP HIGH

LOW Power: The output power shall not exceed 100 watts.
SINGLE-OP - Single operator and single transceiver or single transmitter and single receiver.
MULTI-OP:
- Single operator and multiple transceivers, transmitters and receivers (see note). 
- Multiple operator and single transceiver or single transmitter and single receiver. 
- Multiple operator and multiple transceivers, transmitters and receivers (see note).
Note: No limit to transceivers, transmitters and receivers, but only one signal and running station allowed per band.
The contest takes place with three separate periods: Saturday 00:00-08:00 UTC and 16:00-24:00 UTC and Sunday 08:00-16:00 UTC.
All entrants must operate within the limits of their chosen class when performing any activity that could impact their submitted score. Only the entrants callsign can be used to aid the entrants score. A station operating from a DXCC Entity different from that indicated by its callsign is required to sign portable (i.e.: KH6XYZ/W2 or GM/G1XYZ). All antennas must be physically connected by wires to the transceiver/s, transmitter/s and receiver/s used by the entrant. All used transceivers, transmitters and receivers must be located within a 500 meter diameter area or within property limits of the station licensee, whichever is greater. All operation must take place from the same operating site. Any form of DX alerting assistance is permitted in all classes. Self spotting of any form on spotting nets is not permitted for any class. Self spotting is defined as generating packet radio or web site spots for your contest callsign, including - for example - this methods: using your own callsign; spotting your callsign while using another callsign; spotting of your callsign by other stations as a result of prearranged solicitation. To notify the locator of a station via any form of DX alerting assistance is unwanted and this unsportsmanlike behaviour can lead to a disqualification.
A station may be worked once on each band for QSO points credit.
Exchanges:
No RST required. You have to send the first 4 characters of the "Maidenhead Grid Square Locator" (locator) at your QTH. (i.e.:
FM19 or: JO41). Your log must show the correct locator sent and received for each contact. You must send the same locator in
each QSO. Only portable "/p", mobile "/m", maritime mobile "/mm" and marine stations (example: "VE0***", "HC9***") may change
their locator every 60 minutes.
Points for QSO:
The points for the QSO are equal to the distance in kilometer (rounded to an integer value) between the two stations exchanging
their locator. IOW: one point is equal to one kilometer.
Points on the lower bands: For a QSO on 40m you must multiply the "points per kilometer" with the factor 1.5 and for a QSO
on 80m you must multiply the "points per kilometer" with the factor 2.0. The result must be rounded to an integer value.
Special case - Exception: If both stations are located in the same square, then both stations - regardless of the band -
get 100 points for this QSO finally. Don't multiply this 100 points with any band factor!
Distance: The calculation of the distance should assume the earth is a perfect sphere with a radius of 6378.16 km. The
base point for the distance calculation is the center of the Maidenhead Grid Square.
The formula:
distance = acos(cos(a1) x cos(b1) x cos(a2) x cos(b2) + cos(a1) x sin(b1) x cos(a2) x sin(b2) + sin(a1) x sin(a2)) x radius
a1 = latitude of station-1 
b1 = longitude of station-1 
a2 = latitude of station-2 
b2 = longitude of station-2
Please note: a1, b1, a2, b2 in radians
radians = degrees x PI / 180                     
PI = 3.1415926535897932384626433832795
The distance must be rounded to an integer value.
Multipliers:
No multipliers. IOW: No multiplier for a continent, a country, an area, etc.
Score:
Your total score is the total sum of total points of each band. For each valid QSO the distance and the points and the final
total score will be calculated by the official log checker! You should have this in your mind, if your logging software package
does not support the TMC distance and calculation method or calculates the distance with an other radius of the earth, etc. ..!
Logs:
Do not remove duplicates from your log, as there is no penalty for duplicate contacts.
Logs in CABRILLO format are preferred!
If your received log is accepted you will find your callsign in a list provided on the TMC Web Site. See "Received logs". But
have in your mind: TMC does not run a mail robot! If you provide your claimed score, the score will be published on the TMC Web
Site also. See "Claimed Scores". Providing your claimed scores is voluntary.
The subject line of your email entry should include your callsign and class entered eg "DK3VN Class 1" or "DK3VN Class 3" or
"DK3VN Single Low" or "DK3VN Multi Low".
Logs should be sent as plain text as an attachment only named "<yourcall>.log" eg "DK3VN.LOG" (HB9/DK3VN => HB9-DK3VN.LOG
or DK3VN/P => DK3VN-P.LOG). Also the email should be formated in plain text (ASCII) and not in HTML-Code.
If you have participated in one of the Multi classes, put a remark in the SOAPBOX also, like: SO/Multi, MO/Single, MO/Multi.
Then your entry in the result list will be marked with it.
If your logging software package does not have Cabrillo capability, then you may send your log in plain text format also. In
both cases (Cabrillo or any other format) check out the log templates on the TMC Web Site!
For more information check out the log templates on the TMC Web Site. Any incomplete entries will be classified as check logs.
Sending of electronic logs:
Logs should be submitted by email to: tmc-rtty@arcor.de.
Deadline:
All logs must be received by 15th November 2015 in order to qualify.
Awards:
For each class the top three stations will be awarded with a "World-Certificate". Additional per each Continent each top station
in each class may be awarded with a "Continent-Certificate". If a continent has one or more "World-Certificate" winner, then for
this continent no additional "Continent-Certificate" will be awarded.
The TMC definitions of Continents are: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Oceania.
Rule Violations, Penalties and Declaration:
The judges decision will be final.
Violation of amateur radio regulations in the country of the contestant, or the rules of the contest, unsportsmanlike conduct,
taking credit for excessive unverifiable QSO's or sent an illogical "Maidenhead Grid Square Locator" will be deemed sufficient
cause for disqualification.
