EUROPEAN IOTA DAY CONTEST
4-5 and 11-12 July '98 - 00.01 of Saturday to 24.00 of Sunday - GMT
Two weekends - 96 hrs in total
Simple rules

Dear friends I'm sending this very important news for all IOTA hunters:

1) Manager: myself
2) Only one contribution also if you will work all islands.($1 or 1 IRC or 1000 liras (about 60 cents) or, if you can find it, one Italian post stamp of 900 IT Liras is enough - just the post cost)
3) Please don't send your QSL. Only a log sheet is required.(Just list the call of each Team and progressive # received)
4) It's compulsory to send also a SAE (Self Addressed Envelope)
5) The QSL/Certificate will be a double face (4 sides) model.
6) Because all Teams will send to me a diskette with their logs, I will confirm all islands declared by teams and not as required by the single operator ! A particular PC program will be used. (TNX to Salvatore 1AT28!) For all ATs this single QSL/certificate is more than enough to accredit the worked islands for all purposes because the results will be full controlled by the Teams and the AT IOTA Committee. Other groups will take their decisions in full autonomy.
7) Available also a nice wall certificate ($ 2 just to cover mail costs)
8) Will be awarded (cups & plates) the TOP THREE WORLD IOTA HUNTERS of this contest. (AT or non-AT of course!)
9) Final results will appear on AT Forums and WWDX.

Please note that freq. from 500 to 600 are free for normal traffic. Teams will be operative only from 410 to 495 and from 505 to 855. Please look the freq. table of each island.This contest is open to all operators that like the radio, the DX and the IOTA as to say is open to:

ALL GROUPS and OPERATORS of all CONTINENTS in full friendship !

More than 300 persons are involved in this organization. Please note that this contest will be the greater event never done on all bands. This titanic IOTA contest organization is also the first Alfa Tango attempt to verify if it is possible to join a contest all together.

We are all very excited for this incredible event, the greater never
organized on ALL BANDs.

Operators ........ please show your professionalism, don't make QRM. Before to call ...... LISTEN the call of the island and AFTER you can call. Please use your FULL call. Example 19XX915 and not only 915. A lot of time for the Team to require, every time, " Please your complete call".

Please send only log sheet and not your QSL !

Please and again don't forget to include a self addressed envelope. It's more easy for me also to save mistakes in writing the address ! I replay - in first place - when I have the envelope and on the end of operations for the rest without envelope.
