Finish: Sunday in 23:59 UTC (17 November, 2013 in 23:59)
Modes: BPSK63
Categories (classes):

The output power shall not exceed 100 watts.
All stations at which one performs do all of the operating, logging, and spotting functions. Only one signal is allowed at any
one time. The operator may change bands at any time.
Transmitters and receivers must be located within a 500 meter diameter circle or within the property limits of the station
licensee’s address, whichever is greater. All antennas used by the entrant must be physically connected by wires to the
transmitters and receivers used by the entrant. Only the entrant’s call sign can be used to aid the entrant’s score. All
entrants are allowed to use packet and web clusters.
The same stations may be contacted again on other bands.
EPC members: RSQ + EPC membership number (example – 599 EPC00001). Please make sure that you don't separate "EPC" from the
"Number", and you don't use any characters between. Please make sure that your EPC number consists of 5 digits.
Other stations: RSQ +  QSO number, starting 001 (example – 599 001).
Points for QSO:
5 points per QSO with EPC member;
1 point per QSO other.
A multiplier of one is for each different EPC number contacted on each band.
The final score is the result of the total QSO points multiplied by the sum of EPC numbers contacted on each band.
Mode BPSK63 should be designated in the report as PM and in any way differently! All times must be in UTC. All sent and
received exchanges are to be logged. The Contest Committee accepts logs in the Cabrillo format ONLY. Name your Cabrillo file as
your call sign (for example - mm0epc.cbr, mm0epc.txt or mm0epc.log). The contest name in the Cabrillo header must be EPC-PSK63.
Sending of electronic logs:
You should upload your log via Web interface.
All logs must be sent no later than 5 days after the contest (23:59 UTC 22 November 2013).
First, second and third place certificates will be awarded in the World and every continent. First place certificates will be
awarded in every participating DXCC country. All scores will be published on the EPC website. All certificates will be issued
to the licensee of the station used. All certificates will be issued in a PDF format. If you are interested in sponsoring a
special trophy for the EPC BPSK63 QSO Party, please contact the Committee.
Rule Violations, Penalties and Declaration:
Violation of amateur radio regulations in the country of the participant, or the rules of the competition; unsportsmanlike
conduct; taking credit for excessive unverifiable contacts or unverifiable multipliers will be deemed sufficient cause for
disqualification. Incorrectly logged calls or numbers will be counted as unverifiable contacts for culprit only. The use by an
entrant of any non-amateur means such as telephones, telegrams, internet, or the use of packet to solicit contacts during the
competition is unsportsmanlike and the entry is subject to disqualification. Actions and decisions of the EPC PSK63 QSO Party
Manager are official and final.
The Contest Committee will use the mechanism of monitoring of air for the purpose of revealing of the participants who operate
with exceeding of admissible IMD norms, creating considerable QRM and breaking the Rules of the given competitions.
The basis for disqualification can be:
1. The operation with excess of admissible bandwidth of BPSK31,63,125 signal due to overloads, intermodulation, harmonics of a
sound card and other reasons. The Contest Committee will declare DQ to participants who will be recorded twice in a time
interval not less than 15 minutes with quality of transmitting signal on scale Q less than 7: and worth, with inadmissible bandwidth of signal in Hz visible on "waterfall"
and under condition of presence of a level of air noise on the time-and-frequency diagram.
2. The excess of the output power stipulated by given Rules.
3. The use for transmitting of a control number not corresponding to the Rules of contest, divergence in time of QSOs more
than 3 minutes.
4. Unsporting behaviour during contest.
The results of the infringers will be cancelled. The appeals are not accepted!
