Note!

Use different serial numbers for CW and SSB, as they are two separate contests. Multi operator stations may use separate numbers per band

 

.

Points:

 

Each station can be contacted once per band, both on CW and SSB. Every correct two-way QSO with ES, JW, JX, LA, LY, OH, OHØ, OJØ, OX, OY, OZ, SM, TF and YL gives 2 points.

A QSO with wrong received message. gives you only 1 point

A QSO with a station not submitting a log will not give any points, unless the station is found in at least ten (10) other logs. In that case it gives 1 point

 

 

Multiplier:

 

Each worked Fylke / Län / Province / Region per band, per mode gives one (1) multiplier.

(See the multiplier list below)

A QSO with a station not submitting a log will not give any multiplier, unless the station is found in at least ten (10) other logs. The multipliers are counted separately for CW and SSB.

Final score:

Score = (sum of QSO-points)  x  (sum of multipliers worked on the two bands).

Separate final scores for CW and SSB.

 

Logs:

 

Logs must be submitted separately for CW and SSB within 7 days after the contest. Only electronic logs are accepted.

Look here for this year’s Log submission: http://www.nrau.net/nrau-baltic-contest/logs.html

Please check your log for typing errors and leave ALL your QSOs in the log - including dupes. The log checking software will find the dupes and mark them with zero (0) points.

By submitting a log you agree that your log and the corresponding log checking report may be made open to the public.

Awards:

 

 

Awards and prizes are issued to the first three (3) places on CW, SSB and MIXED in each category.

Additional or fewer awards may be issued depending on the number of contestants.

Every participating country may give out additional awards and prizes.

Disqualification:

 

Violation of Amateur Radio Regulations in the country of the contestant or the rules of this contest, unsportsmanlike conduct and taking credit of unverifiable QSOs or multipliers may lead to disqualification.
The decisions by the Contest Committee are final and definite. The right to make changes in these rules is reserved.

Logging software:


 

Manual input of a paper log:

 

SM2EZT has made a program for manual input of a paper log after the contest.

Cabrillo editor for NRAU Baltic by SM2EZT (Version 1.11 - 21 January 2006)

It’s only one .exe-file called NRAUMan.exe (518 kB). Due to restrictions from the server provider we have to distribute the file as a .zip-file called NRAUMan.zip (258 kB).

 

CLICK HERE   to download the latest version of the program

How to install:

  • Save in a temporary directory
  • unzip the file using WinZip or similar
  • use File Manager to put NRAUMan.exe in a folder that you prefer
    (example: C:/Program/NRAUMan).
