5th Wellenforum Christmas Contest

Hallo friends,

Here are the details for 5th wellenforum Christmas Contest :

1. Contest period
From 21. Dec 2009 (00.00 UTC) until 3. Jan 2010 (23.59 UTC) wellenforum is presenting the 5th wellenforum Christmas Contest.

2. Stations
During the contest bc stations on long- and mediumwave should be logged.

3. Participation Conditions
Participation is free and irrespective of any listener's club membership. Newcomers as well as medium wave specialists can participate. 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
Every bc station heard on longwave and mediumwave can be logged.
Logs without a clear identification will be awarded only one third of the points achievable for this station. Points for a certain log are depending on the CIRAF zone of the particular station. The CIRAF zones are based on the publication "EDXC RADIO Countries" that we will provide together with this invitation.

Scoring scheme:

Station logged from the same CIRAF zone as the place of reception - 10 points Station logged from a CIRAF zone bordering the zone containing the place of reception - 20 points All other stations - 30 points

Your place of reception (QTH) is in Germany - therefore your CIRAF zone is 28. All stations from this zone are worth 10 points. Logs from CIRAF zones bordering zone 28 are worth 20 points. In this case bordering zones are 18, 27, 29, 37, 38 and 39. Stations from any other CIRAF zone are worth 30 points.

5. Sending your logs

Please send all your logs in one single (!) email until 10. Jan 2010 per email to

"frequency - date - time - ITU - station - SIO - details"


"1395 - 22/12/2009 - 2200 - G - Big L - 333 - Music (Michael Jackson "Thriller", ID "Big L", Music (Santana "Maria")"

Please also do not forget to send your real name, your place of reception (QTH), your RX and Ant. details as well as the CIRAF zone you are in! We will be using this data for the complete listing of all logs.
