QRP: output power shall not exceed 5 watts.
SINGLE-OP: One person performs all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. Maximum operating time is 30 hours.
Passive spotting is NOT allowed. (See definition of passive spotting functions below.) Only one transmitted signal is allowed
at any moment in time.
SINGLE-OP-ASSISTED: Same as SINGLE-OP with the following exception: The use of passive spotting IS allowed. (See
definition of passive spotting functions below.)
MULTI-ONE: All rules apply as in SINGLE-OP-ASSISTED; however, more than one operator (person) is involved in the operation.
Maximum operating time is 40 hours. Only one transmitted signal is allowed at any moment in time. The use of passive spotting
is allowed.
Passive Spotting is defined as (but not limited to): DX spotting nets or QSO alerting assistance of any kind. Over-the-air nets or stations that provide frequency and station information. Any device or person that provides frequency and callsign information of any station during the contest period. This includes band skimmers or similar devices. Passive spotting does NOT include band scopes, SDR receivers, or the like, which provide no information about the signal other than its presence, which is allowed in all categories.
All entrants are encouraged to spread out as much as possible, obeying frequency restrictions and power limits for their own
country. Any violations of the ITU band use may result in Disqualification.
For all categories:
The main site is defined as all transmitters, receivers, and antennas must be located on the same contiguous property. If the
property is not contiguous, then all equipment must fall within a 1500 meter radius. All antennas must be connected by wires to
the main station. This rule applies to all entrants.
The use of any so-called "Chat Rooms" via the internet or similar means for communication between stations or operators during the
contest period is strictly prohibited. Do not arrange or confirm QSOs by any other means than the use of the 160 Meter band and
the same mode as used in the contest. Any such use may result in disqualification at the discretion of the committee. The use of
self spotting is not allowed in any category.
Remote operation is permitted under the following conditions:
+ The use of any receiver located away from the main site is strictly prohibited.
+ The use of a separate receiver at the remote control location is prohibited.
+ Any receiver linked via the Internet or RF not physically located at the main site is strictly prohibited.
+ If the remote station is located in another DXCC entity, it is required to comply with all local country regulations.
Operating time: Each contest is 48 hours long and starts at 2200Z. Single operator stations may only operate 30 out of the 48 hours. Multi-Operator stations may operate 40 hours. Off times must be a minimum of 30 minutes in length for all categories.
Club Competition: Any club that submits at least three logs may enter the Club Competition. The name of the club must be clearly identified under club competition on the summary sheet, or summary portion of the Cabrillo log. Please make sure all entrants from your club use the same club name (spelled the same) in the Cabrillo entry. Non-compliance with this request may result in your score not being credited to your club's entry.

Logs:
Logs are requested to be in the Cabrillo file format.
Cabrillo formatted logs are received by a log processing robot. If your log has been submitted correctly, the robot will reply
with an e-mail containing a tracking (confirmation) number. If there is a problem with your log, the robot will send you an error
message containing suggestions for how to fix your log. Read this e-mail carefully. Most log submission problems are minor and can
be corrected in one pass. Submit your log as many times as needed. The last submitted log will be the version that counts for your
official entry. Once you receive a tracking number, your log has been accepted. Inquiries may be sent to questions@CQ160.com.
Be sure to send in paper and diskette based logs early to ensure receipt by the deadlines. Unreadable paper logs will be
classified as check logs.
Sending of electronic logs:

For hardship cases that require more time for log submission, send an e-mail to Director@cq160.com. We will make every effort to

Awards:
Certificates will be awarded to the top scorers in each class by state, Canadian area, and DX country. Runners-up with high scores
over 100,000 points may also receive certificates. The trophies and donors for all categories can be found on the web site official contest
web site. If you are interested in sponsoring a plaque, please contact us at: questions@cq160.com.
Rule Violations, Penalties and Declaration:
Logs will be cross-checked and penalties will be applied at the committee's discretion for contacts determined to be bad or
busted. The bad QSO is removed and a penalty of two more equivalent QSOs is applied to the points only. No penalty should be
applied for unique QSOs unless they are deemed excessive. A log may be disqualified for violation of amateur radio regulations,
unsportsmanlike conduct, or claiming excessive unverified contacts.
Report file outputs showing final score calculations will be available for all entrants after the results are published. The
decisions of the CQ WW 160 Contest Committee are final.
