SINGLE-OP participants may change bands and modes without restrictions. Only one signal can be transmitted at any given time.
MULTI-ONE stations are limited by 10 minutes rule. Only one transmitted signal on one band permitted during any 10-minute period
(run transmitter). Exception: One and only one other transmitted signal (multiplier transmitter) may be used during any 10-minute
period, if and only if it is on a different band than the run transmitter and the station worked is a new multiplier. The run and
multiplier transmitters are governed by independent 10-minute rules. Ten-minute periods begin with the first QSO on a band. The
log must indicate which transmitter (run or multiplier) made each QSO. The multiplier transmitter may not call CQ or solicit
contacts.
All transmitters and receivers must be within a single 500-meter radius circle. All antennas used by an entrant must be
physically connected to the transmitters by wires (feeders).

- Self-spotting (posting your own call on the cluster)
- Fake spotting (posting on the cluster using fake call signs)
- Spotting of your call sign by other stations as a result of a prearranged solicitation (by phone, fax, internet, mail, etc.)
- Remote receivers outside the station location.
The use of public Skimmer and/or Reverse Beacon Network  is allowed for all categories. The use of a local skimmer is allowed
only if its hardware is located in the same location with the entrant station (within the 500m radius circle).
Remote operation is permitted if the physical location of all transmitters, receivers, and antennas are at one station location.
A remotely operated station must obey all station license, operator license, and category limitations.
Post-contest correcting of call signs by using any database, recordings or confirming QSO's is not allowed.
The same station can be worked once in CW and once in SSB.
