Rules for foreign participants
For foreign operators only a few things changed.
- QSO’s made on 60M (New Amateur Band) will not give any points in the PACC 2016. The robot software is not prepared for this.
- All mixed mode categories are allowed to work a station twice per band, once in CW and once in SSB. If the station is a multiplier it will be counted as two multipliers.
- Cabrillo format mandatory. See Cabrillo V3.0 page for details!
- Log submission, analyzing and checking will be done by a software suite developed by HA1AH with a web based interface (details will follow on this website).
After submission an automated e-mail will be sent back stating whether the log complies to the needed Cabrillo format including a gross score check and calculation. After the submission deadline all logs will be further analyzed and cross-checked. After the full check, participants will get an e-mail with their resulting score and log errors.
- You can also send your Cabrillo log ( or ) to the new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please put your call and category in the subject of the mail.
- Please make sure you include your full postal address in the Cabrillo Header. If not, we can’t send you the token of merit…!
