For SINGLE-OP stations: During the entire contest all participants must perform all functions by themselves (including operating the station, making contacts, keeping the log, monitoring the band and dupe checking). The operator may enlist the assistance of third parties for station setup and tear down, maintenance of power supplies and generators, dupe checking following the contest, and the preparation of final logs and other contest documents. For MULTI-ONE stations: There is no restriction on the number of operators. Only a single callsign may be used. The operators will not be counted in any other category. QSOs with members within the same contest team will not be counted.
The location of the station may not be changed during the contest. The location of the antenna determines the location of the
station.
The station being worked must be on the same band (no cross-band contacts allowed).
At any time, only a single signal may be transmitted. The transmitter and receiver are to be set up at the same location.
The use of DX clusters is permitted.
Participants in Switzerland make contact with stations in Switzerland and in other countries. 
Participants in other countries make contact with stations in Switzerland.
The same station will be counted for points only once per band.
Exchanges:
Swiss stations: RS(T) + QSO number starting with 001 + abbreviation of the canton for their location (e.g. 58 001 ZH, 589 001 ZH).
Other stations: RS(T) + QSO number starting with 001.

1 point per QSO with a station in Europe.
3 points per QSO with a station outside of Europe.

Multipliers:
Swiss stations: Canton and DXCC country (including Switzerland) per band.
Worldwide stations: Canton per band.
SWLs: also as transmitting stations.
Score:
The sum of the QSO points multiplied by the sum of the multipliers.
Logs:
Paper logs:
A separate log sheet shall be kept for each band, and logs shall be written on only one side of the page. The following columns
shall be shown on each page:
1. Date (UTC)
2. Time (UTC)
3. Callsign of the contacted station
4. Mode
5. Exchange sent
6. Exchange received
7. Number of points for the contact
8. Multipliers (identified by country prefixes or canton abbreviations)
The heading of each log page shall list the callsign of the participant and the band. The log sheets must be prepared in an
orderly fashion; contacts for which the entries are not clearly legible will be deleted by the contest judges.
Electronic logs:
For log submissions that have more than 100 QSOs, electronic logs are mandatory. Electronic logs should be submitted in
chronological order for the entire contest and not be separated and scored by band.
The logs must be sent as a datafile. A log is considered to have been accepted when a confirmation from the contest judge has
been received. 
Logs in the Cabrillo and DARC STF formats will be accepted. In DARC STF format, the breaks for single-operator stations must be
listed in the "Soapbox" section; in Cabrillo format the breaks must be listed in the SOAPBOX: or OFFTIME: sections. 
The file name must include the callsign of the participant, for example HB9A.STF, HB9A.CBR, HB9A.ALL or HB9A.LOG.
By submitting an electronic log, the participant declares that he has adhered strictly to the contest rules and regulations as
well as the provisions of his license. A written declaration is not required.

Deadline:
Paper logs along with a fully complete summary sheet are to be sent 15 days (by postmark) after the contest. For electronic logs,
the date of receipt is the date of record.
Awards:
For participants in other countries, separate rankings will be determined for each DXCC country and for the USA and Canada for
each callsign district. In the rankings, participants in the MULTI-ONE category will be especially highlighted. The determination
of the callsign district in the USA is the actual state of the union in which the station is physically located. The first-place
station in each category in every country and every callsign district of the USA and Canada will receive a certificate via
electronic means.
Rule Violations, Penalties and Declaration:
QSOs with an incomplete contest exchange, missing serial number as well as missing or incorrect canton will be eliminated.
Contacts that can be confirmed using checks against other submitted logs but that have incomplete or incorrect callsigns for the
contacted station or that contain incorrect exchanges are not valid.
Any violations of the amateur license provisions or the contest rules and regulations, unsportsmanlike conduct and continuous poor quality of the transmitted signal will result in the participant being disqualified. If the violation(s) are not considered serious, a warning alone may be issued. The decision of the jury is final.
