SCORING

For Oceania Transmitting Stations:

  • Each contact with a station in your own DXCC is worth 1 point
  • Each contact with an OC transmitting station outside your DXCC is worth 1 point
  • Each contact made with a non-OC transmitting station [Example: A station in EU, NA, SA, AF or AS] is worth 3 points
  • Only one contact per station will count in final points score
  • At the conclusion of the contest, each DXCC worked adds 3 points onto your TOTAL points score [Example: 43FT144 works 43, 9, 2, 41, 172 and 224 = 6 DXCC = 18 points]
  • Points are then multiplied by the number of OC DXCC worked (i.e. 4) to give a FINAL points score.

For Outside Oceania Transmitting Stations:

  • Each contact with an OC transmitting station is worth 3 points and counts as 1 multiplier [IMPORTANT NOTE: No more than 2 multipliers per OC DXCC will count] [Example: if you work 2 x 43 division stations, total = 6 points + 2 multipliers) [If you work 10 x 43 division stations, total = 30 points + 2 multipliers]
  • Only one contact per station will count in final points score
  • Each contact made with a non-OC transmitting station is worth 1 point
  • Contacts are possible within your own DXCC and are worth 1 point
  • At the conclusion of the contest, each DXCC worked = 3 points onto TOTAL points score [Example: 14 AR 003 works 14, 161, 26, 41, 43, 47, 13 and 2 = 8 DXCC = 24 points]
  • Points are then multiplied by the number of OC TX stations worked (Not OC DXCC) (Limit of 2 multipliers per OC DXCC) to give a FINAL points score.
  • IMPORTANT: To be eligible for final placings, including prizes, in the OC Hunter Category, an outside of OC transmitting station MUST have worked at least 2 x OC transmitting stations.
