Awards and prizes for HAM radio community worldwide
To encourage the HAM radio community worldwide to make contacts with WRTC-2010 participants during the IARU HF Championship contest the weekend of July 10-11, 2010, we would like to announce our special awards and prizes program.
WRTC-2010 awards, special plaques, T-shirts and trophies will be issued based upon the following rules:
1. QSO points
- All WRTC stations will use distinctive callsigns from the block R30A – R39Z. The same WRTC-2010 station may be worked once on CW and once on SSB on each band (80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m). The WRTC stations will not operate on 160m.
- Each confirmed two-way CW or SSB QSO with a WRTC-2010 station counts 1 point.
2. The logs
The WRTC Committee needs as many IARU contest logs as possible to create the QSO data base it will use to cross check the WRTC competitors' logs. We ask all stations working the IARU contest to please send copies of their electronic, Cabrillo formatted logs to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them to http://www.wrtc2010.ru/upload/ no later than 18:00 UTC on Sunday, July 11, 2010 (Note: this is only six hours after the end of the contest). The subject field should contain your contest callsign, e.g., "Subject: RA5AA".
The Committee guarantees that these logs will be used only to determine winners of the WRTC awards and prizes, and for cross checking the WRTC-2010 teams’ logs. Please understand that sending us a copy of your log does NOT constitute a log submission for the IARU HF Championship; for that, you should also e-mail your log to IARUHF@iaru.org.

We also ask you to cooperate with requests from R30A-R39Z stations to move to another band or mode with them for a new multiplier or QSO.
