HQ - A number of Commonwealth Society HQ stations will be active during the contest and will send HQ after their serial number, to
identify themselves. Only one HQ station is permitted per Commonwealth Call Area. Each HQ station counts as an additional call
area, and entrants may contact any HQ station (including one in their own call area) for points and bonuses, the annotation HQ
being made in the log where appropriate.
For stations in the 12-hour categories, off periods must be clearly defined in the Soapbox field of the Cabrillo file and a minimum of 60 minutes in length. However, time before the first contact, and after the final contact, may be of any length. Stations opting to operate for a maximum of 12 hours will be annotated in the results listings.
The term "single element" defines each antenna (eg. dipole, vertical, long-wire, etc), and does not preclude the use of different single-element antennas during the contest. However, the concurrent use of one single-element antenna for transmitting and another (eg. beverage) for receiving is not permitted. The RSGB General Rules define Assisted and Unassisted.
Team Competition: - Each team will consist of up to five stations. In addition to Australia, Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand and Rest of the Commonwealth teams, any Commonwealth country or geographical region may enter one or more teams. An individual station may only represent one team, and may compete in the Open, Restricted or Multi-operator Section. Each contributing station's log must be submitted in the normal way. - Each team will have a captain who must submit a list of callsigns of team members to commonwealth.contest@rsgbcc.org no later than seven days before the start of the contest. Substitutions may be accepted up to the start of the contest. - Stations in the Rest of the Commonwealth team(s) may only be drawn from countries not submitting their own team. Team Scoring: - The team score is the sum of individual adjudicated scores, with all stations located in the southern hemisphere or on the equator having their final score multiplied by a "latitude factor". - The "latitude factor" will be re-calculated each year based on published scores: for each hemisphere, the highest-scoring team total for each of the last three years will be used to give an overall total and the factor will be calculated as the ratio of the northern to the southern grand totals rounded down to the nearest two decimal places. - Each team member is competing as a single-operator or multi-operator within the overall contest, and no passing of information between team members during the event is permitted, except that team members may work each other for points and/or bonuses where the contest rules allow.
Land-based stations operated by licensed radio amateurs within the Commonwealth or British Mandated Territories (as defined by the
RSGB call-area list) are eligible to enter.
UK entrants must be members of the RSGB. With the specific exception of the UK HQ station, UK stations may not use any special
callsign.
Contacts may be made with any station using a Commonwealth Call Area prefix, except those within the entrant's own call area. Note that for this contest, the entire UK counts as one call area, and therefore UK stations may not contact each other except as QSO with HQ-stations.
Exchanges:
RST + serial number. HQ stations will additionally send HQ, which must be logged.
Points for QSO:
5 points per QSO.
20 bonus points for each of the first three contacts with each Commonwealth Call Area on each band. Each HQ station counts as an
additional call area, and entrants may contact any HQ station (including one in their own call area) for points and bonuses.
Logs:
Each entry must indicate the section entered, with the full postal address of the entrant. Electronic logs must be submitted in
Cabrillo format.  
Information on submitting paper logs is available in the RSGB General Rules.
