Worked All Europe - Logging Sent / Rcvd QTCs?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi Scott/Kimberly. It's been several years since I participated in the Worked All Europe Contest but as I remember it back then:
1. Work stations and log them (the contests I participated in were always CW).
2. Eventually a station will send QTC?
3. At this point you look at your log (paper log back then) and determine if you have any QTCs. In laymen's terms a QTC is log information related to a prior QSO. If I remember correctly you had to send the "time" "call" and the "serial" number you originally received back to the station that asked for the QTC. You can send up to 10 QTCs to the requesting station. You can also send fewer than ten if you have less. You can even respond "NO QTC" whether you have them or not and move on.
Again I want you to be aware that I haven't worked a WAE contest in years but it's a lot of fun as I recall. Not sure if they have a SSB contest as all the ones I worked were in CW. The rules have probably changed over the years. Hope this helps.
