4. No QSOs that have been made in any contest or sprint may be used in completing a challenge.
5. Only QSOs made with a station who was transmitting from a location within Europe at the time of the QSO may be submitted.
6. You can use each letter and cipher in a call TWICE. For example you could use MW∅MIE for 4 (=2×2) M’s, 2 W’s, 2 ∅’s, 2 I’s and 2 E’s. However, subsequent QSOs with the same station cannot be used for additional letters.
7. Each challenge runs over an entire month.

K1IEE
Still another fun challenge. Propagation conditions continue to decline to Europe. The letter V was hard for me to find. The number 8 I thought I would never find in time before the challenge ended at the end of the month I found G8DX. 20M band had weak signals with QSB most day’s of the month. Thanks to all 73 Dick

EA1KC
Condx extremely poor in all bands.
RIGS: Argonaut 515, 4w — FT817, 4w — Home made Pixie, 400 mW
ANTS: Lèvy
LWKEYS : Old marine — WWII german — Ariston key + Home made electronic keyer BANDS : 7, 10, 14, 18 MHz
