Stations exchange six-digit grid squares. The signal report is optional.

The 6-digit is used to calculate the distance (kM) between stations, for points. New versions of GenLog use [vhf4k.adi] for lookup. Enter the 6-digit if not found in the lookup file, or if the station transmits a different one. GenLog displays the heading and distance after the square is entered. If your antenna is calibrated to known beam headings (beacons) and you know the station`s beam heading from the 6-digit data, your chances of making a contact are greatly improved. Now you just need to have propagation and find his frequency.

When

Each new call sign per band scores 100 QSO points.

1 QSO point per kM distance between your 6-digit and the 6-digit received.

Total score = sum of the QSO points plus the sum of the distances.
