SCORING. THE LOGGER WILL COMPUTE SCORE FOR EACH CONTACT BASED ON THE FOLLOWING:

Novice1 to Novice1 (online logger confirmed) 5 points

Novice1 to Novice2 (online logger confirmed) 4 points

Novice2 to Novice1 (online logger confirmed) 4 points

Novice2 to Novice2 (online logger confirmed) 2 points

Novice1 to contact unconfirmed in online logger 3 points

Novice2 contact unconfirmed in online logger 1 point


States/Provinces/Countries and bands are multipliers



Online logger confirms contact based on call sign, date, band, and S/P/C


The online logger also logs, but does not score, duplicates.  You will see duplicate QSO data highlighted in light red on the logger screen. Only the FIRST QSO with another station will be scored.


You do not need to enter QSO data in real time; you can go back at the end of the event and enter data from a paper log.


ALL SCORE IS COMPUTED BY LOGGER. SIMPLY LOG IT CORRECTLY, AND THE LOGGER DOES THE REST. 

YOU WILL NOT ENTER THE OTHER STATION'S RIG INFO OR CLASS.


ENFORCED RESTRICTIONS: 

Only one entry per band per callsign.  Violation will show the entry as pink and will not contribute to the score. Only the FIRST qso will be scored, any dupe, highlighed in pink, will not count.


SPOTTING, SKED PAGES, SOCIAL MEDIA:

Spotting, sked pages and social media for announcing frequencies, and arranging contacts is approved and highly encouraged for NRR.


LOGS:

The 2019 online contest logger is the only acceptable logger for 2019. Sorry, no paper logs, index cards or cocktail napkin logs accepted.


AWARDS:

Award certificates to top scoring stations.


PRIZES:

Will be awarded by drawing.
