The contest is open to all stations world-wide.
Stations operating from a qualifying island are “Island Stations”. They must make sure beforehand that the QTH from which they are operating is a valid island for IOTA purposes. This can be checked and Island References can be obtained here.
<>Stations not operating from a qualifying island are “World Stations”.
Special Contest Callsigns or Club Callsigns may be used.
Operation must be from a single Station location where all transmitters, receivers, and antennas are located within a circle of a radius no greater than 500m. Remote receivers outside the Station location are not permitted.
Remote operation of a World Station is allowed where the operator is situated within the same country on the DXCC list as the Remote Station. Remote operation of an Island Station is only allowed only where the operator is situated on the same IOTA Island as the Remote Station.
A remotely operated station must obey all station licence, operator licence, and category conditions. The callsign used must be one issued or permitted by the Regulatory Authority of the remote station location. The address of the operator must be included in the ‘Address of Operator when operating Remote from Station Address’ box on the Station Information Page and the address of the remote station must be included in the Cabrillo header ‘ADDRESS:’ box. The RSGB HF Contest Committee may place remotely operated stations in a separate results table.
