Participants according to their wish choose working position in the frost or warmth, following their tactical objectives and
capabilities in the game. The temperature is being fixed in the place, where participants and equipment are.
- Participation is allowed only in one group;
- Participant, having replaced position "Field" for "Stationary" or vice versa, is considered a participant of the subgroup
"Stationary";
- Participants of the subgroup "Field" are not allowed to use permanent contest-positions and basic antennas. The equipment's
power is only independent one. The type of independent power is not regulated;
- Stations, working from outside permanent QTH, during the game at the end of the call are recommended to transmit corresponding
identifier, for example: UT5NM/p (YU1LM/m, RA1M/mm, etc); 
- All participants are allowed to use passive nets of DX-info and clusters, self-spoting is prohibited;
- At any moment of time participant can transmit only one signal.
A duplicate contact is allowed on different bands and different modes, and also on one same band with the same mode if at least
one of the stations has changed a letter from the series and there was no such a combination of letters before
One can inform about the change of the letter in contest call: 'CQ MOROZ/S'.
Exchanges:
RU-QRP-members: real RST (RS) + membership number  one of the letters from the series: F.R.O.S.T.;
Non-members: real RST (RS) + NM  one of the letters from the series: F.R.O.S.T..
MULTI-OP stations:
- operators-members of the RU-QRP Club always transmit their membership number;
- the rest of operators transmit either the membership number of club station (if there is such) or "NM".
Stationary stations always transmit only one letter "T". Participants of the subgroup "Field" transmit one letter from the series "F.R.O.S."(but NOT "T")
The change of one letter to another is carried out after having conducted 10 QSOs with the previous letter. It is possible to activate a new series of four letters only after having passed the whole series completely, that is after 40 QSO (10 QSO "F" + 10 QSO "R" + 10 QSO "O" + 10 QSO "S", after this one can begin a new series "F.R.O.S" again.The order of activated letters is always the same - "F.R.O.S".
Example: 'UR5LAM de RK4FB ur 579/086/T'. Or: 'RK4FB de RX3ALL ur RST 579 my RUQRP nr 79/F'. You can also exchange with other information (like exact t, name, QTH, etc.) during the QSO.
Points for QSO:
- 1 point per QSO 1 point;
- 1 additional point, if QSO is confirmed in the correspondent log;
- 5 additional points per each contact with RU-QRP member;
- 20 additional points per each complete set of letters FROST + bonus for temperature.
During the game, missing letter in a series of kit can be complemented by the letter FROST its working position, provided it
complies with the missing letter and held for at least 10 QSO with this letter identifier.
Bonus for the temperature to every full set of F.R.O.S.T is calculated according to the formula: Bonus = 20 - T, where T - is
a temperature on the working position in Celsium degrees. Minimum temperature must be indicated in the log in SOAPBOX.
Bonus for the temperature on the position +20C and higher is equal to "0".
Examples of bonus calculation for the temperature on the position:
Bonus at +20C and higher is "0", every complete set of F.R.O.S.T = 20 + 0 = 20 points;
Bonus at +10—: 20 - 10 = 10, every complete set of F.R.O.S.T = 20 + 10 = 30 points;
Bonus at -12—: 20 -(- 12) = 32, every complete set of F.R.O.S.T = 20 + 32 = 52 points.
- SWL-participants get points on the same condition only with that difference that in observance both correspondents give points. And bonus is calculated on the basis of the temperature on the position of the SWL.
Score:
Sum of QSO points + RU-QRP members points + full F.R.O.S.T. sets points + bonus for the temperature on the position.
