The total number of ciphers and letters is 80. They are distributed as follows:

  A  B  C  D  E  G  H  I  J  L  M  N  O  P  R  S  T  U  W
 12  1  3  4  7  3  4  5  1  7  3  9  2  1  8  4  3  1  2

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.

At last I got to fix my antenna and now is working very well. Most of my contacts were made with 2 watts or less. (FT-817, PWR used: 0.5 to 2 Watts, Ant Ground Plane R-8 Cushcraft)
Best 73,

Another great challenge. My rig is Heathkit HW-9 at 4 watts into a OCF long wire antenna. 17M work sell for me this month.
Thanks to all 73 Dick
