UBA International Prefix Hunt Competition

This is not a contest in usual sense but a competition, which runs over the whole year and enables you to measure your achievements in prefix chasing. Even if you are not a contester you can easily participate because every QSO you make on every HF band counts for the competition.

Date: from January 1, 2010 00:00 UTC until December 31, 2010 23:59 UTC

Modes: All modes (CW, Phone, RTTY, and all other digital modes)

Bands: All HF bands (160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15,12 and 10m). All your QSO's count for the competition.

Categories: All Licensed Radio amateurs and SWL's.

Points: Every different prefix counts 1 point on each band.

Multiplier: Every different prefix counts once as a multiplier.

Final score: The sum off all prefixes on all bands multiplied by the number of different prefixes.

Only electronic logs via email in ADIF format will be accepted. Send your your log of the past month before the 5th of the following month to the Competition Manager in order to compile an interim results list. Just export your log of the last month in ADIF. You don't have to calculate your score yourself. Last logs must reach the Competition Manager before the 10th of January of the following year. Name your file "yourcall-month in figures.adi" (ex: ON7SS-01.ADI for the January log). There is no need to mention a claimed score. All logs will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not be made public. Interim results and the final result will be published on the UBA Website
Send your logs to

Digital competition certificates will be granted to all participants who
reach at least 300 different prefixes.

We do count on your hamspirit and expect you to log only QSO's which took
actually place.

Good luck in prefix chasing.
