The EIDXG Summer Challenge 2020 begins on June 1st at 00:01 UTC and ends on Sunday 30th August at 23:59 UTC.
Open to everyone. All you need to do is to work as many unique DXCCs, CQ Zones, participating EIDXG members and as many of the 32 EI/GI Counties as possible.
Each counts just once, regardless of which Band or Mode you work it on. Example: Your first KL7 QSO will give you 1 point for Alaska and another point for Zone 1. If you work another KL7 station on a different Band or Mode it doesn’t give anything additional. If you work 10 stations in county Dublin for example, you get the point for your first QSO with Dublin only. If you work Declan EI6FR on 20m CW, you’ll get 1 point as he is an EIDXG member. You do not get any additional points if you work him on different Bands or Modes. If you work Hal W8HC, you get a point as he is an EIDXG member…etc..


Download the Check-sheet’s   (or Excel format  Check Sheet for EI DX Group Summer Challenge 2020 )  and mark off each one as you work them. Alternatively, why not print them off and have them next to your radio for convenience.
There will be winners in the following categories:
Rest of World
..plus Bonus prizes!
In the event of a tie (stations with same score), the Winner will be the one who worked their last counter in the least amount of time.
Your ADIF or Cabrillo log to be submitted to challenge@eidxg.com no later than September 6th. Include your claimed score and full postal address address.
Winners announced at ‘DX Féile 2020‘ on October 3rd.
