Time frame:

The first day of the month 0000 UTC through the last day of the month 2400 UTC.

Rules:

1. All QSOs submitted for credit in the challenge must be 2x CW.
2. All QSOs submitted for credit in the challenge must be made using 5W or less of output power measured at the transmitter. The station worked in any QSO may be using any power level.
3. Any and all bands may be used.
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.
8. European and other NAQCC challenges are not mutually exclusive. Members can participate in both in any given month. Indeed the call of each station worked may be submitted for more than one NAQCC challenge.
9. Non-members are very welcome to participate in and submit their entries for NAQCC European challenges, but are not eligible for awards. They will be listed in a separate section in the results.
10. Reports must be RECEIVED before 2400 UTC on the tenth of the month following the challenge.

A certificate and two participation points go to anyone making the names of these European film directors, the title of the first film they (co-)directed and the year of production.

Participation award and web listing:

To get a Participation Award and to be listed on the web site you must make at least one of the names of these European film directors, the title of the first film he (co-)directed and the year of production.

Hi Ton, bit slow this month. I worked all but the ‘T’s fairly quickly but it has taken me 6 days to get those.

Another great challenge. The letters E and O had me work to the last day of the challenge. Thanks to all

Every QSO was made running one watt or less. Unfortunately I could not finish this challenge for two “R” and one “4”. Perhaps next time.

RIGS : Argonaut 515 · FT 817 · Home made QRPp 18 MHz SSB/CW TRX “Peregrino”
ANTS : Levy · LW · End Fed 18 MHz
KEYs : Vibroplex key + Home made electronic keyer
BANDS : 7 · 14 · 18 · 21
50% of Challenge letters “worked” in 18 MHz with the 400 mW from the small “Peregrino” in spite of the poor prop. condx.
