Tesla Memorial HF CW Contest

Dear contester `s
We have prepared for you a new World Wide contest, which at first glance looks like the other contests. In most cases, HF contest are All bands, have multipliers and bonus points for a particular continent or country. In this contest there is no multiplier, there is no predetermined number of points (one, two, three, six, etc..), no bonus points and no penalty. In this contest the number of points depends only on the geographical distances between stations. Our plan is that this contest become traditionally and will be held every year, every second weekend in March.

The contest is dedicated to Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), the great scientist and inventor, and therefore we invite you to take part in the third Tesla Memorial HF CW Contest.


Poštovani takmičari
Pripremili smo za vas novo World Wide takmičenje koje samo na prvi pogled liči ostalim takmičenjima. U većini slučajeva KT takmičenja su "All bands", imaju množitelje i bonus poene za određene kontinente ili zemlje. U ovom takmičenju nema množtelja, nema unapred određenog broja poena za vezu (1, 2, 3, 6, itd.), nema bonus poena i nema kaznenih poena. U ovom takmičenju broj poena zavisi isključivo od geografske razdaljine između stanica. Plan nam je da ovo takmičenje bude tradicionalno i održavaće se svake godine drugog vikenda u martu.

Takmičenje smo posvetili Nikoli Tesli (1856-1943), velikom naučniku i pronalazaču, te vas pozivamo da uzmete učešće u trećem Tesla Memorial HF CW takmičenju.
