EXCHANGE. Italian stations will send RST and two letters to identify their province. Other stations will send RST and a serial number from 001. The serial number will NOT restart from 001 on each band/mode.

1. each Italian province (110) count 1 (one) multiplier, 2. each DXCC country (except I & IS0) count 1 (one) multiplier.
The same multiplier (country/province) can be counted once and only once for band.
The 110 Italian provinces (by call-area) are:
I1: AL, AT, BI, CN, GE, IM, NO, SP, SV, TO, VB, VC.
IX1: AO.
I2: BG, BS, CO, CR, LC, LO, MB, MI, MN, PV, SO, VA.

1. QSO/HRD with own country counts 0 (zero) point but is good for the multipliers credit.
2. QSO/HRD with own continent counts 1 (one) point, 3. QSO/HRD with different continent counts 3 (three) points, 4. QSO/HRD with any Italian (I & IS0) station counts 10 (ten) points.
The same station can be contacted on the same band once on SSB/CW/RTTY but only the first QSO is good for multipliers credit. PLEASE REMEMBER that I
(Italy) and IS0 (Sardinia Island) are NOT country-multipliers.

FINAL SCORE. The sum of QSO/points from all bands times the sum of multipliers from all bands.

SWL. Listeners are required to log the callsigns of both the station heard and the correspondent station. Score is calculated based only upon the station heard using the same rules as transmitting stations. A callsign may not appear more than 3 (three) times as a correspondent regardless of mode.
SWLs MUST log no more than 1 (one) QSO on each line of their log.

LOGS and SUMMARY SHEET. Separate logs are necessary for each band. Logs must show all the QSOs data. A summary sheet is required showing all the scoring details, class of entry, name, callsign, full address of the applicant, callsign of other operators and a signed declaration.
Logs must be mailed within 30 days from the end of the contest and addressed
to: ARI DX Contest, c/o ARI, Via Scarlatti 31, 20124 Milano, Italy.
Logs on diskette are really very welcome and accepted in substitution of paperlogs. Please send us your log on diskette. Accepted formats are: N6TR, K1EA, EI5DI, UA1AAF, WF1B,Writelog, Cabrillo. A printed summary sheet must always be enclosed.
Alternatively, logs in ASCII format (or as attached files) may be sent via e-mail addressed to <>.
You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your log within 48 hours.

PENALTIES and DISQUALIFICATIONS. Logs will be carefully checked by the Contest Committee and mistakes may cause a score reduction. Disqualification may apply for: excessive number of unmarked duplicates (more than 2%), violation of the "10 minutes rule" (either for band and mode), excessive declared score, log without the summary sheet. instead to disqualify a log, the Committee may decide to penalize it by erasing a percentage of its score.

AWARDS. A plaque with a certificate will be awarded to the top scoring station in each class. Special plaques can be awarded by the Contest Committee if country/continental/call- area participation will justify the decision. A certificate will be awarded to No. 2, 3, 4, 5 top scoring stations in each class as well as to the top scoring stations in each country in each class.

FREE SOFTWARE. Many free software are able to handle ARI DX Contest. Take a visit to ARI DX Contest webpages for download:
