All contest contacts MUST be above 35kHz from the bottom of each band (example: 7.035 and up, 14.235 and up, 21.335 and up). Any contest contact made below the 35kHz contest band edge will not count.

You can work all stations (Asian and non-Asian) and you will receive points for distance between you and operator (as follows):
1 point per QSO (0-500km)
2 points per QSO (500km-2500km)
3 points per QSO (2500km-5000km)
4 points per QSO (5000km-10000km)
5 points per QSO (10000km +)

1 point for each multiplier of a new worked Asian country and/or territory (one time during the contest).
