September 2016 challenge

 

Premise:

Construct the names of these 20th century European painters and the dates of their first one-man exhibition (based on an idea by Val, EA1KC):

PICASSO 1901
MATISSE 1904
MONDRIAN 1909
KLEE 1910
KADINSKY 1912
APPEL 1946

The total number of ciphers and letters is 63. They are distributed as follows:

0 1 2 4 6 9 A C D E I K L M N O P R S T Y
4 9 1 2 1 7 5 1 2 4 4 3 2 2 3 2 3 1 5 1 1

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.

Awards:

A certificate and two participation points go to anyone making the names of these painters and the dates.

Participation award and web listing:

To get a Participation Award and to be listed on the web site you must make at least one name of a painter and the date.

Logs:

For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter.

Please send your log in this format (this challenge is just an example):
