SARL Autumn QRP ContestThe Autumn QRP Contest will be on the air on Saturday 8 April from 12:00 to 15:00 UTC. This contest is intended to be fun activities to promote QRP operation between radio amateurs.
Using homebuilt equipment or operating as a portable/field station and using temporary antennas is encouraged, but is not a requirement.
The first hour is limited to the 40 m band only, the remaining two hours the contesters are free to use any HF (non-WARC) band as they see fit. Comply with the contest-preferred segments as detailed in the general rules. You may use SSB and CW with 5 watts (PEP) output or less and a station may be worked once per band per mode.
The exchange is a RS or RST report and your Grid locator, please use the full 6-character grid locator. e.g. KG41ad and please consider exchanging realistic RS(T) signal reports. With DX contacts the locator information can be omitted.
Each contact counts 1 point, each South African call area 0 through 9 counts as a multiplier and each DXCC country worked counts as a multiplier. There is also a Station type multiplier.
