2020 IOTA 海岛大赛启航

一年一度的海岛大赛开始了,2020年因新冠肺炎影响规则稍有变化,BG4OP竞赛团队与济南黄河业余无线电部分人员25日经由青岛出发,开始了竞赛之旅。


在即将到来的IOTA竞赛中致电DXpeditioners
RSGB IOTA竞赛将于7月25/26日举行。打算作为DXpedition站进入的参赛者应在https://www.rsgbcc.org/hf/rules/2020/riota.shtml上注意今年的规则 。RSGB竞赛委员会于2020年4月25日发布了一个通知,称与“待在家里”指南一致,为了最大程度地减少Covid-19的影响,2020年的IOTA竞赛仅面向使用其本地电台的单一运营商。单一运营商固定的“海岛”或“世界”电台有资格进入,但RSGB不会在2020年颁发奖杯;可下载的证书将提供给获奖者。IOTA Ltd确认,在正常情况下,周末进行的岛屿接触将计入其IOTA计划。

RSGB IOTA Contest
In line with “Stay at Home” guidance, to minimise the impact of Covid-19, the IOTA Contest in 2020 is exclusively for Single Operators using their home stations;

The RSGB IOTA Contest is the most popular contest in the RSGB HF Contests calendar, attracting entries from around the world.

IOTA refers to the RSGB "Islands on the Air" awards. A newcomers' guide to the system of IOTA references and further information on the IOTA Contest can be found at the IOTA Contest Information page and on the IOTA Contest FAQ page. A beginners' guide to operating in the contest is here.

The contest is open to all single operator stations world-wide

Stations operating from a qualifying island are "Island Stations". They must make sure beforehand that the QTH from which they are operating is a valid island for IOTA purposes. This can be checked and Island References can be obtained here.

Stations not operating from a qualifying island are "World Stations"

Special Contest Callsigns or Club Callsigns may be used

Operation must be from a single Station location where all transmitters, receivers, and antennas are located within a circle of a radius no greater than 500m

Remote receivers outside the Station location are not permitted

4 (b) Categories

4.1 CATEGORY - LOCATION:

(i) "Island Station - Fixed", a station operating from a qualifying IOTA island, explained in Rule 4(a)

(ii) "Island Station - DXpedition", may not enter the contest in 2020

(iii) A "World Station" is any station which is not an Island Station

 

4.2 CATEGORY - OPERATORS:

(i)  Single Operator Unassisted

(ii) Single Operator Assisted

The Category Overlay - NEWCOMER is available to Single Operator entrants, where the operator was first licensed less than 3 years before the date of the contest

In Single Operator categories, only one signal may be transmitted at any one time

(iii) Island Multi-1 stations may not enter the contest in 2020

(iv) Island Multi-2 stations may not enter the contest in 2020

There are no World Station Multi-Operator categories

4.3 CATEGORY - MODE:

Mixed-Mode

4.4 CATEGORY - OPERATING TIME:

12 hours. In the 12-hour category, operation need not be for one continuous 12-hour period, but once operation has commenced in the contest, off periods must be a minimum of 60 minutes.

4.5 CATEGORY - POWER:

High Power -- maximum licensed power, but no more than 1500W output
Low Power - maximum 100W output
QRP - maximum 5W output

Any station not indicating transmitter power will be classified as High Power

5. Exchange

World Stations: send RS(T) and serial number starting from 1, for example:    599 254

Island Stations: send RS(T) and serial number starting from 1, plus their IOTA Reference, for example:    59 378 EU115

If you are not sent a serial number, log a zero

Mixed-Mode entrants may contact stations on both CW and SSB on each band. Do not use separate numbering systems for CW and SSB.

Island stations should announce their IOTA Reference during CQ calls so that other stations can check for Dupes before replying

6. Scoring

Island Stations contacting:
World Stations: 5 points
Island Stations 
having the same IOTA reference: 5 points
Other Island Stations: 15 points

World Stations contacting:
World Stations: 2 points
Island Stations: 15 points

Multiplier. The multiplier is the total of different IOTA references contacted on each band on CW, plus the total of different IOTA references contacted on each band on SSB

The Total Score is the total of QSO points on all bands added together, multiplied by the total of multipliers on all bands added together

7. Log Submission
and Adjudication
Submit in Cabrillo format here within 5 days of the end of the contest. View the correct Cabrillo format for this contest

If the robot finds format errors, it will reject the log and ask for resubmission of a corrected logfileSecond and subsequent log uploads may be subject to analysis of any changes that have been made

If you have difficulties preparing or uploading your Cabrillo logfile, please contact the contest adjudicator to ask for assistance, before the submission deadline

Adjudicated results will be online and will include online logfiles for all entrants

Errors will incur penalties as outlined in the RSGB HF Adjudication Principles. This penalty will be the loss of an additional 5 QSO points.

The use of CAT Control to log the correct frequency and mode is highly recommended - you will lose QSO points for frequency and mode errors

8. Results and Awards RSGB will not be awarding trophies in 2020 but downloadable certificates will be available to winners

Winners of awards will be indicated in the results tables complete with downloadable certificates
