3.    Two categories:
        A.  Single operator phone (SSB)
        B.  Single operator CW.

4.    It is allowed to participate in both categories. In that case two separate logs are obligatory.

5.    Of every DXCC-country (except USA, Canada and Mexico), every USA-state, every Mexican state and every Canadian province only three stations count for the points: the first station is valid 5 points, the second 3 points and the third station 1 point.

6.    The contest log has to consist of the columns:  Date (YYMMDD), UTC (HHMM), Station heard, RS(T) by the heard station, reported group (Nr,State or Province),Working station,Points,DXCC (except USA, Mexico and Canada), USA-state, Mexican state or Canadian province.  The stations in the USA and Mexico report the state abbreviation and the Canadian stations the province abbreviation. The other stations report the goup as a 3 or 4 figures group.
See the log example below. Attention: If the log has been created in the Cabrillo Format, the colums "Points", "DXCC" and "State/Province" may be omitted. A splendid computer program for generating the Cabrillo format is "SWL DQR Log", made by SP7DQR and downloadable from: swl.veron.nl/swlcontest.

7.    Only heard stations working in the ARRL 28MHz Contest are valid for the points and multipliers.
