of their membership in any DX club and their knowledge.
Logs have to be made through the wellenforum-Online-Log facility
which will be available at in due course.
Please note, that a registration is necessary to be granted access
to the Log-facility.
Every station has to be heard at least for 10 minutes. Notes on the
programme heard have to be logged as detailed as possible to really
identify the station (no empty phrases like “music”, “news” etc.).
4. Scoring
Each broadcast region (please note the specialty for UK) will score
only once.
Each broadcast region receives a basic score of 500 points divided
by the number of logs for this region.
This individual score will be round up to the nearest full number.
There will be a maximum score of 50 points per log.
Ambiguous logs without a definite identification will receive only
1/3 of the full score.
Example: Faroe Is. was logged 20 times = 500 / 20 = 25 points per
participant Madeira was logged 2 times = 500 / 2 = 250 points = 50
points per participant

5. Awards
Every participant will receive a participation certificate prompt
after the contest has finished showing individual score and ranking.
In addition every participant will receive a special diploma listing
those individually logged broadcast regions that have been confirmed
by the contest management.

We wish you good listening!
