4th-10th Prize: 10 HamSphere Credits
Method 1: Operator finds a free repeater and starts calling CQ Contest. After contact the operator has to leave the frequency to the other op. If the other op does not want to grab the relay baton, the Operator must leave the repeater anyway (and start calling on a different repeater)
Method 2: Operator hears CQ on a repeater and answers call. After contact the frequency will belong to him/her to call CQ. After this CQ is answered and a contact occurs, the operator has to leave the frequency to the new op. If the new op does not want to grab the relay baton, the Operator must leave the repeater anyway (and start calling on a different repeater)
Once a station is required to QSY, that station is not allowed to make another QSO on the vacated repeater until or unless at least one subsequent QSO is made on a new repeater
Failure to leave the frequency over as described in method 1 and method 2 will make the participant disqualified.
The operator is of course welcome back to use the repeaters again (using method 1 or 2) after they have been used by other ops.
