IARU R1 Fieldday – Regler

DARC verkar ha fått problem med sin webbsajt och det går inte längre att nå reglerna för IARU R1 Fieldday som går i helgen.  Nedan är en kopia av de regler som låg ute för några dagar sedan på den tyska sajten.

IARU R1 Fieldday – Rules

1. Objective

The IARU-Region-1-Field Day is an excellent opportunity for club activity in varied areas, such as antenna design, construction and erection, generator maintenance and, increasingly, computer expertise without regular power lines and fixed antennas.

2. Contest periods

CW : first (full) weekend in June – Saturday 15.00 UTC to Sunday 14.59 UTC (2016: 04.-05. June)
SSB: first (full) weekend in September – Saturday 13.00 UTC to Sunday 12.59 UTC (2016: 03.-04. September)

3. Bands

1,8, 3,5, 7, 14, 21, 28 MHz (no SSB-operation at 1.8 MHz from German stations)

Contest preferred segments:

CW: 3.510 – 3.560, 7.000 – 7.040, 14.000 – 14.060 MHz
SSB: 3.600 – 3.650, 3.700 – 3.800, 7.060 – 7.100, 7.130 – 7.200, 14.125 – 14.300 MHz

4. Registration

Fieldday stations can register online at www.darc.de/referate/dx/contest/fd/anmeldung/. Successful registration is confirmed by email; there are maps with all registered stations available at the site mentioned above.

5. Working conditions for all Field Day stations

The equipment of the Field Day stations (portable) must consist of portable equipment, portable antennas and power supplies independent from the power line. Use of existing or previously installed equipment is not allowed. It is not allowed for Field Day stations to use the mains power.

The installation of the station and antenna must not start earlier than 24 hours before the beginning of the contest. It is not allowed to attach the antennas to houses or other permanent buildings. The distance to the next power line or inhabited houses must be at least 100 m.

Only one transceiver or one receiver and one transmitter is allowed. Stand-by equipment is allowed on site, but it must not be connected to a power source when the main equipment is in use. The RF power should be adjusted to the maximum power output and constantly monitored to assure that it at not time exceeds the maximum power allowed for that section.

All stations are subject to inspection by representatives of the Field Day manager who will ensure that the rules and spirit of the contest are being observed.

6. Classes of Operation

This is a portable contest as generally defined above.

  • Portable, single operator, QRP, assisted
  • Portable, multi operator, low power, non-assisted
  • Portable, multi operator, low power, assisted
  • Portable, multi operator, QRP, assisted
  • Portable, multi operator, high power, assisted
  • Fixed

Stations outside and inside Germany are participating in different categories.

Output power:
QRP = 5 watts maximum
Low Power = 100 watts maximum
High Power = more than 100 watts

Non-assisted stations are permitted to use only one antenna with a single element (vertical or dipole). No more than two elevated supports’ not exceeding 15 m height above ground at its highest point’ are permitted

Single operator stations are permitted to operate only 18h of the 24h contest period.

The 6h of non-operation must be taken in not more than three periods and must be clearly noted in the log.

All stations, which are not meeting the field day rules are fixed stations and are not counting for the DARC-Club-Championship and for the DARC-Short-Wave-Trophy.

7. Call

CW : CQ FD
SSB: CQ Field Day

8. Exchange

RS(T) + serial number starting from 001

If the station worked does not send a serial number, log the contact with number 000.

9. Scoring

fixed station to fixed station: 0 points

For contacts with:

  • fixed stations in Europe: 2 points
  • fixed stations outside Europe: 3 points
  • portable stations in Europe: 4 points
  • portable stations outside Europe: 6 points

Each station may be contacted only once per band.

Portable stations only count as portable if they sign “/p”, “/m”, “/mm”, or “/am”,

10. Multipliers

ONE for each WAE country / DXCC entity worked on each band

11. Scoring

The final score is computed by multiplying the sum of the total number of QSO-points by the sum of the multipliers.

12. Logs

Upload only STF or Cabrillo logs to www.darc.de/referate/dx/contest/fd/logupload/

FD-station accepts that on demand the log may be transferred to another FD manager outside of Germany.

13. Deadline for log entries

The 3rd Monday after the contest: (for 2016: June, 20th and September, 19th)

14. Awards

Certification of Merit will be available on the DARC server for download.

15. Disqualification

Violation of the rules of the contest, un-sportsmanship conduct, or taking credit for excessive duplicate contacts will be deemed cause for disqualification.

Actions and decisions of the DARC Contest Committee are official and final.

16. E-mail addresses

På söndag är det NRAU-BALTIC

En liten påminnelse om att nu på söndag den 15/1  körs NRAU-BALTIC test på 80- och 40- metersbanden. Testen startar med SSB-delen klockan 0630-0830 UTC, följt av CW-delen 0900-1100 UTC.

Testmeddelande är RS(T) + löpnummer + regionbeteckning.
T.ex. 599 013 SE om man är i Skåne.

Läs mer i reglerna på http://www.nrau.net/nrau-baltic-contest/rules/23-nrau-baltic-contest-rules.html .

Samtidigt som testen är individuell, summeras de 10 bästa resultaten från varje land i landskampen. Så glöm inte att slå på radion i morgon och kör så det ryker! Ju fler svenskar som är igång, desto större chans att Sverige placerar sig bra i landskampen.

 

Håll koll på frekvensen i WAG

I helgen den 15-16 oktober är det åter dags för Worked All Germany Contest. Testen går 1500-1459 UTC och samtidigt kommer banden vara fyllda med scouter eftersom det är JOTA samtidigt.

I WAG-testen har man tagit detta på allvar och använder sig av “contest free segements”.

To reduce interference with the participants of JOTA,
contest operation is not allowed in the following contest-free sections
(list as pdf):
80m: CW – 3560 – 3800 kHz, SSB – 3650 – 3700 kHz
40m: CW – 7040 – 7200 kHz, SSB – 7080 – 7140 kHz
20m: CW – 14060 – 14350 kHz, SSB – 14100 – 14125 kHz and 14280 – 14350 kHz
15m: SSB – 21350 – 21450 kHz
10m: SSB – 28225 – 28400 kHz
(sideband is part of the signal)

Så det är extra viktigt att kolla upp reglerna, så att man inte av misstag gör i dessa segment. Läs mer i WAG-reglerna!

Nya regler i ES-OPEN

På lördag den 16:e april är det åter dags för den regionala testen ES OPEN HF Championship. Testen startart 0500 och slutar 0859 UTC, med både SSB och CW samtidigt på 80 och 40 metersbanden. Man har ändrat reglerna och nu är det tillåtet att kontakta samma ES-station två gånger per band och period, en gång på CW och en gång på SSB. Så här skriver Tonno, ES5TV i sin inbjudan till testen:

Dear friends,

ES hams invite you to participate in ES OPEN HF Championship 2016 that will take place on Saturday, April 16th, from 0500 to 0859 UTC on 40m and 80m in SSB and CW at the same time!

International winners get special trophies from ERAU plus all country winners will be awarded. There is also a special LP trophy.

Please check the results and rules from www.erau.ee:
http://www.erau.ee/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=114&Itemid=91

Reacting to the feedback we have modified the rules to allow more QSOs with ES stations and make it simpler!

The contest consists of 4 equal one hour periods where you can work any ES station twice on both bands (once in CW and once in SSB). Thus maximum 16 times in total during the contest for mixed mode entrants. For single mode entrants it is maximum 8 QSOs as previously.

Foreign stations can work ES stations only and multipliers are ES region prefixes (0 to 9) on both bands and modes. So 20 for CW/SSB and 40 for mixed mode.

CW QSOs give 2 points and SSB 1 point. Report is RST + QSO serial number.

Text format logs (cabrillo strongly preferred) should be uploaded at special webpage esopen.eu (see claimed scores and statistics also from there after the contest) or sent to esopen@erau.ee by May 1st.

On ERAU web page you will find instructions how to use Win-Test, SD by EI5DI, TRLog and N1MM logging software! N1MM, SD and UcxLog support ES Open directly. In Win-Test you can use just some mixed mode contest like RDXC and make 4 different log files – one for every hour to count dupes correctly. Add the cabrillo files up to one file later.

CU and GL in the contest!
