Exchange your name, RST, QTH (state US, province for Canada, country for 
DX), receiver and transmitter manufacturer/model (homebrew send final amp 
tube or transistor type) and other interesting conversation.
The same station may be worked with different equipment combinations on each 
band and in each mode.
Non-participating stations may be worked for score if all required 
information is exchanged.

1. Calculate your score for each mode (AM, SSB, FM, CW)
2. Total those scores for your overall CX score.
To calculate the score for the mode: Multiply the total number of complete 
QSOs (all bands) in that mode by your CX multiplier.
Complete QSO requires successful exchange of name, QTH, RST, type of 
transmitter and type of receiver.
CX multiplier is the total age in years old of all receivers and 
transmitters you used in that mode. Do not include age of ancillary items 
such as separate VFO, amplifier, key or bug, antenna, tree holding up 
antenna, operating desk, operator, or operator's dog.
Each receiver and transmitter must be used in a minimum of three complete 
QSOs to be counted in the multiplier.
If the equipment is homebrew, count it as a minimum of 25 years old unless 
actual construction date or date of its construction article is older.
Transceivers score as separate receivers and transmitters of equal age.
Please send a copy of your log and a listing the equipment used with ages 
for each mode.
If you operate 6 or 2 meters please note it in a way that the scores can be 
easily extracted.
All QSOs must be direct radio communications - not through repeaters in
