SRR invites radio amateurs from all over the world to take part in the new EME contest.
The 145 MHz Russian EME Contest is intended to encourage worldwide activity on 2m moonbounce, support of VHF activity in remote regions of Russia and around the globe.
Each different DXCC country and each Russian region form a multiplier.

2. Sections and Awards
No sections. All participated stations will get certificates. The first 10 places will get awards. The
winner will get the special trophy prize. All EME-contest novices will get stickers on their
certificates. According to the organizers decision the stations with a small ERP which showed good
results will also be marked by awards.
For the purpose of the contest only one scoring per valid QSO with the same other callsign can be
logged. No other limitations. Use of loggers and cluster is allowed.
4. Contest Exchange
