Time Duration :   Saturday 24th June  5:30 UTC to Sunday 25th June 12:00 UTC
                              (Saturday 11:00 Hrs IST  to Sunday 17:30 Hrs  IST)    

Registration: Please send a Mail to with call sign of participant.

Important: The operators have to strictly adhere to their emission mode in accordance to their category of license.and power output should not exceed 5 Watts.

Objective: Promote hams to go out to remote places such as hills, beaches etc. and establish stations to communicate with other hams in the country. This can be treated by individuals as emergency preparedness, serious contest, and experimentation of antennas or just picnic with friends. However, winning the contest will require smart search of the locations and preparations.

Category A – HF Bands: 40, 20, 15, 10 M
Category B – VHF, UHF & 6 M
Category C – HF, VHF, UHF & 6 M

MODES:- SSB, CW and Digital   


  1. Any number of teams can be participating from a single Grid Square. Such team should internally sort out on the exact station location. ARSI will not intervene in any issues surfacing due to team conflicts
  2. Each station should take local authority permission if required to operate and make their own arrangement to stay. Local authority permission and stay is the responsibility of the team and not ARSI
  3. Only one callsign should be used for a team. For Example: VU2LU, VU2GGM, VU3HPG.  

Multiplier points :      

  1. Multiplier for UHF and VHF: A distance Multiplier of 1 for every 10 Kms distance between each station will be computed as the Distance Multiplier. The distance multiplier shall be computed from the Grid Location exchanged between stations
  2. 6m, VHF and UHF  contacts earns 1, 2 & 3 QSO points respectivelyfor each Grid-Squares they have contact with (other than their own gridsquare).
  3. For HF,  each QSO with “VU” hams is 1 QSO Point and DX hams is considered as 2 QSO points
  4. No points for contacting via terrestrial repeaters
  5. Solar or Battery operated station will earn a multiplier of 1.1 on their total score. Proof of activity should be justified with photos.
  6. Station staying outdoors with camping gears will earn a multiplier of 1.2 on their total score. Proof of activity should be justified with photos.
  7. Stations operating from home will be considered under a different (Home Station) category.
  8. Stations should exchange and log grid-square of the location for VHF, UHF and 6 mtrs.
  9. On HF bands (40, 20, 15, 10m) exchanges are normal signal (RST) reports.
  10. QSO logging should be UTC time only. Log submission will be due in 15 days time from the contest conclusion. All logs should be converted to computer readable format and sent. No paper logs will be accepted. Logs to be sent as email attachments to The subject of the email should be only the callsign of the individual.
