This contest is associated with the 31st Annual SEANET Convention to be held in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, November 27-30th 2003, http://www.seanet2003.com It is suggested that we operate around certain preferred frequencies so that is easy to find the SEANET stations, also there is a slight change to the basis on which awards will be made. Please see changes in Paragraphs 3 and 12 *.

For the purpose of the contest "SEANET" stations are defined as those operating from the following ITU zones:

42 - 9N,B/BY
43 - B/BY

64 - T8,KC6,KH0,KH2,
65 - C2,KH9,T2,T30,T33,V6,V7
90 - JD1(Minami Torishima)

The DXCC Entity list for multiplier scoring purposes is:

1S/9M0(Spratly),3D2,3W/XV,4S7,8Q7,9M2,9M6/9M8, 9N,9V1,A5,AP,B/BY,BV,C2,DU/DT/4F,FK,H4,HL,HS/E2, JA,JD1(Minami Torishima),JD1,KC6,KH0,KH2,KH9,P5, P29,S2,T2,T30,T33,T8,V6,V7,V8,VK,VK0L,VK0M,VK9C, VK9M,VK9N,VK9W,VK9X,VQ9,VR2,VU,VU(Andaman), VU(Laccadive),VU,XU,XW,XX,XY/XZ,YB/YC,YJ,ZL,ZL7, ZL8,ZL9,



For contacts between WORLD-WIDE and SEANET Stations = 10 points.
    For contacts between SEANET stations in DIFFERENT SEANET countries/entities = 10 points.
For contacts between SEANET stations in the SAME country/entity = 5 points.
WORLDWIDE stations can only claim multipliers for DXCC entities within the SEANET Region - See entity list above.

SEANET stations can claim multipliers for DXCC entities WORLDWIDE including the SEANET Region and own country.

Each multiplier counts once only regardless of band or mode. Note - for mixed-mode entries QSO points can be claimed with the same station on each of the three modes, and for multi-band entries - QSO points can be claimed for QSOs with the same station on different bands. Note that only one contact per mode is allowed on each band with the same station. E.g. A "Voice" mode contact can only be made once per band with the same station.

SSB or FM can be used for the contact, but points cannot be claimed for an SSB and an FM contact with the same station. Similarly on digital, any digital mode can be used to make a digital mode contact with the same station, but points cannot be claimed for more than one digital mode with the same station.

Scores should be calculated as follows:
For single-band entries: Multiply total QSO points x total multipliers. E.g.10 QSOs x 10 points = 100 QSO points x 2 mults = 200 Points.
For multi-band entries:  Add QSO points for all bands then add the unique multipliers. multiply total QSO points by total multipliers. (multipliers count like the WPX Contest i.e.. once only, and not once per band, and not once per mode) 
A sample log is shown to illustrate how multi-band scores are claimed: Duplicate contacts and comments are included to clarify rules.

For World-Wide Station - multi-band, multi-mode (Example DL1AA):

Contacts on cross modes or cross bands will not count. Operators are not allowed to transmit two or more signals at the same time on the same band.

Entries which contain errors or unmarked duplicates are liable to a reduction of points. Any entrant who uses methods contrary to the spirit of the contest may be subject to disqualification. The decision of the SEANET contest organisers shall be final.

All stations may use Internet or Packet Cluster "Spotting". Multi-band, multi-operator stations must not use more than one transmitter / transceiver at the same time for contacts, except that a second receiver / transceiver may be used for "spotting" only. The "spotting" station must not transmit or make any kind of contact.



All entries should be in the form of written or computerised logs and summary sheets showing claimed scores band by band plus the total score claimed must be signed by the person responsible for the entry. Entries made on computer diskettes or by Email can use ASCII (text) format or contest software such as SD (Super Duper) or TR (N6TR). These two programs can be configured for the SEANET format.

Paul O,Kane (EI5DI) the creator of Super Duper Contest Software is kindly making a special offer for the contest. The demo version of SD (which can be downloaded from the Web-site www.ei5di.com) is fully-working in many contests including RSGB, ARRL DX, ARI, Helvetia, SPDX, King of Spain - these are all contests with (Areas, Zones, Counties, Provinces, Districts etc.) as multipliers. The demo version doesn't support contests with country multipliers, including SEANET. However, he will send a key file, by email, to anyone who sends  $5 USD and requests a key file for the SEANET Contest (to 36 Coolkill, Dublin 18, Ireland).  This is one eighth of the normal registration fee.

Information required for contest logs are:

Time (GMT/UTC)
Report sent (RS([T]), Serial # sent
Report Received (RS[T}), Serial # Received
claimed QSO points
claimed multipliers Multipliers should be listed.

Entries can be Emailed to


            Ray Gerrard HS0ZDZ
            PO Box 69
            Bangkok Airport Post Office
            Email to <g3nom@rast.or.th>

  Entries should be received not later than 30th September 2003.

Results will be announced at the SEANET 2003 Convention, Eden Garden Hotel, Johor Bahru, Malaysia on 29th November 2003, and will be published on the SEANET2003 Web-Site http://www.seanet2003.com  If you require a result slip, please enclose 3 IRCs together with your entry. 




The winners of each category will be awarded a trophy, plaque or souvenir of the SEANET Convention, provided at least three entries are received in the category and the winner has made at least 10 valid contacts.

The top three  entries in each category will receive a certificate, providing more than three entries are received, otherwise a certificate will be awarded to the winner only.



Special SWL rules

Only stations taking part in the Contest may be logged for scoring purposes.

Logs should show in columns:

Callsign of "Station Heard", complete exchange sent by this station,
Callsign of station being worked,
a RS(T) report on "Station Heard" at SWLs QTH,
points and multiplier.
    If both sides of a contest contact are heard they may be claimed as separate stations and the callsigns have to appear in the "Station Heard" column. A station may only appear once per band as station heard. In the column "Station Worked" the same station may not be logged more than 10 times per band.

Good Luck in the Contest!
