CIS DX Contest


Commonwealth of Independent States Contest

CIS stations send RST + CIS area code (no dash).
GenLog uses the following DXCC prefixes from the [ dxcc_pre.dat ] datafile to indentify CIS stations: 4K, EK, ER, EU, EX, EY, EZ, R1F, R1M, UA, UA2, UA9, UK, UN, and UR.

QSO points:
QSO between stations in different continents = 3
With same continent, but different DXCC country = 2
With same DXCC country = 1

Note: Your area code is entered into the `Sec/Prov` field of the setup screen, or edit the `TX Exch` combo-box of the logging screen. After a log is re-loaded, the `TX Exch` field is loaded from the log file.


Non-CIS stations send RST + serial number.

QSO points:
QSO with any CIS station = 5
Between stations in different continents = 3
With same continent, but different DXCC country = 2
With same DXCC country = 1

Multipliers for all: CIS areas and DXCC countries per band. Band mults shown are only DXCC countries. The total mults including Areas are shown in the totals field.

Score = total QSO points  X  total multipliers.

When working non-CIS stations, the exchange label changes to `Serial#`, otherwise it reads `RX Exch`. Regardless, you should always enter what the station transmits, since there are Special Events callsigns that may not be one of the CIS prefixes used by GenLog.

Area mults can be viewed when you click the {Worked} label. As with other contests, the sum of the {Worked} and {To Work} totals should equal the overall total (193 in this case) and are shown by log. View the summary to see the band totals.

Datafile required: [ cisdx.dat ].
