4. Entry Categories

Scandinavian and non-Scandinavian stations are placed in separate categories.

4.1 Single Operator – Single TX

Single operator means that one single person performs all operating, logging and spotting functions.

4.1.1 For Scandinavian stations:

  • All Band – High Power [SINGLE-OP ALL HIGH]
  • All Band – Low Power (transmitter output 100 W or less) [SINGLE-OP ALL LOW]
  • All Band – QRP (transmitter output 5 W or less) [SINGLE-OP ALL QRP]
  • Single Band [SINGLE-OP 80M] [SINGLE-OP 40M] [SINGLE-OP 20M] [SINGLE-OP 15M] [SINGLE-OP 10M]

All Band, Single Operator entrants may also participate in one of the overlay categories by adding the CATEGORY-OVERLAY: line with either ROOKIE, TB-WIRES or WIRE-ONLY in their Cabrillo log file:

  • Tribander/Single-element [CATEGORY-OVERLAY: TB-WIRES]

Participants in the ROOKIE overlay must be licensed for the first time less than 3 years before the actual contest starts.

Participants in the TB-WIRES overlay shall use only one triband antenna with a single feed line from the transmitter to the antenna for 10, 15 and 20 meters, and single-element antennas for 40 and 80 meters.

Participants in the WIRE-ONLY overlay shall use the same single wire antenna for all bands.

Overlay category entries will be listed separately in the results. They are scored as All Band entries and grouped by High Power and Low Power (includes QRP).

4.1.2 For non-Scandinavian stations:

  • All Band – High Power [SINGLE-OP ALL HIGH]
  • All Band – Low Power (transmitter output 100 W or less) [SINGLE-OP ALL LOW]
  • All Band – QRP (transmitter output 5 W or less) [SINGLE-OP ALL QRP]
  • Low Band – High Power, only 80 and 40 meters. [SINGLE-OP LOW-BAND HIGH]

4.2 Multi Operator – Single TX – All Band [MULTI-ONE]

This category is for all participants. Only one signal may be transmitted on any band at any time (running station). When operation has started on one band, the station must remain on that band for at least 10 minutes. The 10-minute period starts with the first QSO worked on that band.

Exception: It is allowed to work a QSO on another band if it is a new multiplier (multiplier station). The multiplier station is allowed to be on the air at the same time as the running station. The multiplier station may not solicit contacts by calling CQ, but may ask stations during the multiplier QSO to move to another band where the multiplier is needed. The log must indicate which station/signal (run or multiplier) made each QSO.

4.3 Multi Operator – Multi TX – All Band [MULTI-MULTI]

This category is only for Scandinavian stations. There are no restrictions on the number of transmitters. Only one signal per band is allowed at any time.

4.4 Station Location

All transmitters and receivers must be within a single 500-meter diameter circle. Antennas must be physically connected by RF transmission lines to the transmitters and receivers.

Exception for 2020:
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we allow Scandinavian Multi-Multi stations to operate with “scattered stations”, similar to the HQ-station concept in the IARU HF Championship. If you decide to participate with “scattered stations”, please inform us via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
