RulesYou can work with everybody.

Only one QSO per band with the same station.

You need to work as many big grids (for example IO85, JN07 etc) of operators who are working from countries which belong to constant and negotiating members of the European Union and their entities and located inside European continent plus Cyprus and Turkey as possible.

Repeated QSOs with the same station are valid on every new band.

15 minutes must have passed before you can contact the same op on a different band.
Score CalculationFinal result = Total points for QSOs x (Total multipliers on all bands + 1)
+1 is for cases if operator did not work any European Union big grid.

MultipliersMultipliers:
Every unique big grid (for example IO85, JN07 etc) of operator who are located in countries and territories which belong to constant and negotiating members of the European Union and located inside Europe continent + Cyprus and Turkey on every new band.
So if you worked for example IO85 on 3 different bands, you will receive 3 points for multipliers for your worked IO85 big grid. And so on for every unique big grid.
