C2C (Coast to Coast)
2007 C2C (Coast to Coast) - 1700Z, Sep 29 to 1700Z, Sep 30:
Each first QSO with a club gives you a point multiplier.
See Scoring rule below.
1. Purpose: To contact as many clubs that have FISTS numbers as possible.
2. Mode: CW Only.
3. Contest dates: runs 24 hours 1700Z, Sep 29 to 1700Z, Sep 30
(PDT 10am Sat Sept 29th to 10am Sunday Sept 30
MDT 11am Sept 29th to 11am Sunday Sept 30
CDT 12pm Sept 29th to 12pm Sunday Sept 30
EDT 1pm Sept 29th to 1pm Sunday Sept 30
Clubs will operate on their own schedules. They are not required to be on
the air the entire 24 hours of the event.
4. Bands: 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. We encourage Clubs to use the
Novice segments also. Sorry, no WARC bands. Clubs will call near regular
5. Two categories of participants: QRP (5W or less) and QRO. All clubs will
be considered QRO.
6. Only FISTS clubs will call CQ. Clubs will call: "CQ C2C"
7. Exchange: Clubs and operators exchange the following elements:
o FISTS Members and Clubs: RST, Name, State (or 2 character prefix if DX),
and FISTS number. Clubs: Send only your club's FISTS number.
o U.S. Example: 579, Stan, VA, 2934
o DX Example: 599, Ralph, ZL, 1073
o Non-FISTS: RST, Name, State, and Power (be sure to suffix with 'W').
o U.S. Example: 459, Bill, OR, 50W
o DX Example: 569, Yuri, UA, 100W
8. Scoring for non-club operators: Points for scoring are accrued as
o 1 point for each club worked on each band, once per band.
o For the first QSO with any club you accrue one multiplier point.
o To calculate your final score, multiply the total number of C2C club QSOs
times your multiplier points.
o You had 20 club QSOs total. Those 20 QSOs were with 12 of the clubs
(remember that only one club QSO per band counts towards your total). Thus,
your final score is your multiplier, 12, times the total QSOs, 20 = 12 X 20
= 240 C2C points.
o You worked 15 clubs. 10 of those clubs you worked on one band, 5 you
worked on 2 bands. Your total QSOs are 10 + (5 x 2)= 20 QSOs. Since you
worked 15 clubs total, your final score is 15 X 20 = 300 C2C points.
o You worked 25 clubs on just one of the 5 bands. You worked the same 20
clubs once more each, but on one or more of the other 4 bands . Your
multiplier is then 25 (for 25 unique clubs) and you have 45 club QSOs total.
Your final score is then 25 times 45 = 1125 C2C points.
4. Your first QSO with a club counts 1 point for your multiplier and 1 point
for your total QSO count. Your total multiplier points cannot exceed the
number of clubs that are on the air.
5. You get 1 point toward your total QSO count for the same club each time
you work it on one of the other 4 bands.
6. You multiply all club QSOs times your multiplier for your total C2C
Scoring for clubs. New this year is a more rational method of club scoring.
? 1 point for each QSO
? 1 multiplier for each state worked regardless of band
? To calculate your final score, multiply the total number of contacts by
the number of different states worked.
? You had a total of 80 QSO?s and 20 different states. (Remember, states
only count once regardless of band) The score would be 80 X 20 = 1600 club
? The maximum number of multipliers is, of course, 50.
Club operators will NOT be eligible for personal points based on their QSO?s
using a club call. Club operators will be contributing to the score of their
club. Club operators can be spread out across the country much like the NAQP
teams. But they MUST NOT be on the same band at the same time. This will
require club callsign trustees to keep close track of operator times and
frequencies. Clubs will be disqualified if they are found to be transmitting
multiple signals on the same band simultaneously. This is in keeping with
the multi rule found in most contests.
