25WPEP transmitter output power (the maximum power in Czech Amateur radio service
regulations). Foreign stations are requested to use the same output power to enable
comparisons with the first test on 28 February.
• Categories: One common category
• The use of spotting networks is permitted.
1 point for 1 km of distance of each QSO. A QSO with the own locator scores 1 point.
Extra points can be collected for each correctly received QTH – 10 points for each new QTH.

SSB, digimodes). The total score is the sum of all “km” points + the sum of QTH points
collected from the two activity periods.

We would like to involve amateur stations experimenting with wideband modes in this test e.g.
reduced bandwidth digital television or other wide-band emissions. Such stations would need to
participate in the 2ndactivity period. If there are any such stations wishing to participate in this test,
they should contact EI3IO at EI3IO@connogue.com
