2nd Greek Telegraphy Club (G.T.C.) CW Cup
Aim of the contest:
To work members of the Greek Telegraphy Club (G.T.C.) in CW mode and to promote
CW mode to the Radio Amateur community
Contest Period:
Saturday, 6 October 2012 - 12:00UTC until Sunday, 7 October 2012 - 12:00UTC
Exclusively CW (A1A)
80m (3.520Mhz – 3.530Mhz)
40m (7.020Mhz – 7.030Mhz)
20m (14.030Mhz – 14.060Mhz)
15m (21.030Mhz – 21.060Mhz)
10m (28.030Mhz – 28.060Mhz)
The above working bandwidths are recommended by the G.T.C. , but all CW QSOs
in accordance with the official band plans will be considered valid
A. SOAB (Single Operator, All Bands, regardless of power output to the antenna
B. SOAB/QRP (Single Operator, All Bands, power output to the antenna input
limited to 5W PEP). Stations participating in this category are obliged to send
/QRP or /p after their callsign (e.g. SV5DKL/QRP or SV5DKL/p). In different case,
their logs will be automatically transferred to category A.
G.T.C. Members: RST + GTC + 3-digit member number (e.g. for QSO of G.T.C. member nr. 28 the
sent  report should be 599 GTC 028)
Non-members  : RST + ΝΜ (Non-Member)
Who to work:
Everyone may work everyone, but just once per each band. Participating members of the         
G.T.C. should take part under their own callsign and not under any special callsign. A G.T.C.
special club station will be on-air during the event, under the callsign SZ1SV and member
number G.T.C. 1000
QSO Points:
QSOs with SZ1SV Club Station   : 100 points
QSOs with G.T.C. members         : 10 points
QSOs with non-G.T.C. members : 1 point
Each QSO with a G.T.C. member per band counts for one (1) multiplier. For instance, if you work
the same G.T.C. member in three (3) different bands, then this counts for three (3) multipliers
Total Score:
The total score is calculated by the sum of QSO points (as described above) multiplied by the
multiplier total
Log submission:
Electronic logs of your participation should be e-mailed at latest by 30 October 2012 to  
the European Communications Manager of G.T.C. , Stathis Maliakis - SV5DKL to the
following e-mail address: sv5dkl@rho.forthnet.gr

category of participation (Α ή Β). For instance, SV5DKL - Category A
Valid logs will be considered those that will have been received up to the above mentioned
date and that will be fully completed (the logs should contain at least the following data for
each QSO: Date, UTC, Callsign, Band, Mode, RST sent, Member No. sent, RST received,
Member No. received).
QSOs that will not be verified during the cross-checking process from the submitted logs
of the two correspondents, will not be considered valid. For that reason, all participants
are encouraged to submit their participation logs in time, even if they have made a small
number of QSOs.

following formats will be accepted:
ADIF, Cabrillo , .csv , .xls , .txt , .dat (dBase) , .wl (Writelog for Windows).
Also, hand-written logs sent by mail with postal signature up to 30 October 2012 will be
accepted, as long as they, too, contain at least the required data mentioned above for each

following sentence:

with the rules and conditions set by the G.T.C. CW Cup committee and with the
permissions and restrictions defined for my station's radio amateur license. Furthermore,
