Norway LA  LB  LG  LJ  LN
Finland OF  OG  OH  OI
Aland Islands OF0  OG0  OH0
Market Reef OJ0

Iceland TF
SINGLE-OP 80M ... SINGLE-OP 10M, MULTI-MULTI - Only for Scandinavian stations. SINGLE-OP-ASSISTED 80M-40M HIGH - Only for non-Scandinavian stations. SINGLE-OP - Single operator means that one person performs all operating, logging and spotting functions without any external assistance. The use of DX-Cluster, Skimmer or Skimmer-like technology (such as Reverse Beacon Network, RBN) is only allowed in the assisted categories. Requesting stations to announce ones own call on the DX-Cluster is NOT allowed. Scandinavian All Band, Single Operator entrants may also participate in one of the overlay categories by adding the CATEGORY-OVERLAY: line with either ROOKIE, TB-SINGLE or WIRE-ONLY in their Cabrillo log file: - Rookie [CATEGORY-OVERLAY: ROOKIE]; - Tribander/Single-element [CATEGORY-OVERLAY: TB-SINGLE]; - Wire-only [CATEGORY-OVERLAY: WIRE-ONLY]; ROOKIE - Participants in the Rookie category must be licensed less than 3 years before the CW contest starts. TB-SINGLE - Participants in this category shall use only one triband antenna with a single feed line from the transmitter to the antenna for 10, 15 and 20 meters, and single-element antennas for 40 and 80 meters. WIRE-ONLY - Participants in this category shall use the same single wire antenna for all bands. MULTI-ONE - Only one signal may be transmitted on any band at any time (running station). When operation has started on one band, the station must remain on that band for at least 10 minutes. The 10-minute period starts with the first QSO worked on that band. Exception: It is allowed to work a QSO on another band if it is a new multiplier (multiplier station). The multiplier station is allowed to be on the air at the same time as the running station. The multiplier station must also stay on the "multiplier band" at least 10 minutes, and may not solicit contacts by calling CQ. The use of DX-Cluster, Skimmer, and Skimmer-like technology (such as RBN) is allowed. Requesting stations to announce ones own call on the DX-Cluster is NOT allowed. MULTI-MULTI - There are no restrictions on the number of transmitters. Only one signal per band is allowed at any time. Separate serial numbers are used for each band. The use of DX-Cluster, Skimmer, and Skimmer-like technology (such as RBN) is allowed. Requesting stations to announce ones own call on the DX-Cluster is NOT allowed.
All transmitters and receivers must be within a single 500-meter diameter circle. Antennas must be physically connected by RF
transmission lines to the transmitters and receivers.
The same station may be worked once on each band. Cross-mode and/or cross-band QSOs are not allowed.
Exchanges:
RS(T) + serial number starting with 001 (e.g. 59(9)001). (QSOs after 999 are numbered 1000, 1001 etc).
Points for QSO:
For Scandinavian stations:
2 points per QSO with Europe;
3 points per QSO with DX.
For non-Scandinavian stations:
EUROPEAN stations:
1 point per QSO.
NON-EUROPEAN stations:
1 point per QSO on 14, 21 and 28 MHz bands;
3 points per QSO on 3.5 and 7 MHz bands.
Multipliers:
For Scandinavian stations:
Each worked non-Scandinavian DXCC country is valid for one multiplier for each band.
For non-Scandinavian stations:
Each worked prefix-number (0-9) in each Scandinavian country is valid for one multiplier for each band (e.g. SI3, SK3, SL3, SM3,
7S3 and 8S3 are all in ONE district and count for ONE (1) multiplier on each band).
Portable stations without a prefix number count for the 10th area (e.g. LA/G3XYZ counts for LA0), and those with two or more
prefix numbers for the area indicated by the first number (e.g., OZ150A counts for OZ1). 
OH0 (Aland Is.) and OJ0 (Market Reef) are separate call areas.
Score:
To calculate the final score, multiply the sum of QSO points on all bands with the sum of multipliers worked on all bands.
Logs:
Logs must be submitted separately for CW and SSB, and the QSOs must be listed in chronological order.
By submitting a log, you agree that your log and the corresponding log checking report may be made open to the public.
Electronic submission of logs at http://www.sactest.net is required for all entrants.
Use the CABRILLO format. Please ensure that you fill out all of the header information.
Leave all your QSOs in the log, dupes included. The log checking software will find the dupes and mark them with zero points.
Participants aiming for a top-three score should include the exact frequency (a 1-kHz resolution is sufficient) of every contact
in the log.
Sending of electronic logs:
Log must be upload via SAC LOG UPLOAD Page.
Deadline:
Cabrillo logs or typed-in paper logs shall be uploaded no later than 7 days, at 23:59:59 UTC after the end of the contest. Logs
submitted after the deadline will be listed as checklogs.
Awards:
Awards for all participants will be downloadable for printout from the SAC website.
Scandinavian winner stations will receive a Contest Plaque in the High Power, Low Power, QRP, Rookie, TB-Single and Wire-only
All Band categories.
The non-Scandinavian continental winners will receive a Contest plaque in the High-power all band category, provided a
reasonable score is made.
Both Scandinavian and non-Scandinavian stations may receive Special Plaques sponsored by individuals through the "SAC Sponsored
Plaque Program".
Depending on the number of participants, the Contest Committee may consider additional awards.
Scandinavian Cup The Scandinavian Cup is a competition between the Scandinavian Regions. All entrants scores for both CW and SSB are accumulated to a total for each region. All logs except for checklogs are counted towards the total.A circulating trophy is awarded to the league of the region that wins the Cup.
