Africa All Mode International DX Contest
The objective of this all-mode contest is to stimulate contesting from Africa. All participating stations worldwide may work any country during the contest period. African DXCC entities are defined as those valid per the ARRL DXCC AF listing published at the time of the contest.

8. Entry Categories
For all categories, the use of spotting nets and skimmers are permitted. For all cate- gories, there are no restrictions on the number of band or mode changes made in any given period during the contest. Contestants may only submit their log in one of the 18 categories available.

9. Categories Eligible for Rookie Awards
The rookie awards in the AMA contest aim to reward individual rather than team efforts, which show flexibility and skill in operating procedure for recently licensed amateurs. They are available for the categories of 1.1.4 and 1.2.4. You are eligible to mark your log submission as a rookie entry if you were licensed for the first time on, or less than two years prior to, the contest date. If you enter one of the rookie categories, you may not enter a different category in the same contest. It is not mandatory to enter as a rookie if you qualify as such, you may also elect to enter any of the non-rookie categories.
10. Contest Exchange
The exchange is your RS(T) (not checked during the log checking process), followed by an incremental serial number commencing at “001”. Changing modes or bands does not necessitate different serial number ranges, i.e., the serial number simply progresses from “001” upwards sequentially as you log QSOs in any category, for single or multi-op efforts. A complete exchange, consisting of an RS(T) and serial number, must be logged for each QSO.
Each QSO claimed for competition credit must comply with the rules found under 15. General Rule "5. Contacts".
11. Power Levels
For the purposes of this contest, all entrants must adhere to the power levels (ex- pressed as Peak Envelope Power, or PEP) as set out below when determining their entry category. Additionally, all entrants must adhere to their specific licensing requirements regarding permitted power and other regulations, which take precedent over the contest-defined power levels when operating in the contest.
- QRP is defined as 5 watts PEP or less as measured at the antenna port at the transmitter, or power amplifier (if used).
- Low power is defined as more than 5 watts PEP but not more than 100 watts PEP measured at the antenna port either at the transmitter, or power amplifier (if used).
- High power is defined as more than 100 watts PEP but not more than 1 500 watts PEP measured at the antenna port either at the transmitter, or power amplifier (if used).
12. Points, multipliers and scoring
Points - All QSO’s are awarded 1 point.
The band multiplier is determined on a band-by-band basis.
The band multiplier increments by one for every AF-DXCC entity worked, for each of the three operating modes: CW, SSB and RTTY.
Band score is simply the band points multiplied by the band multiplier. Band score = (band points) X (band multiplier)
Total score is simply the sum of all the band scores.
Total score = 10 m band score + 15 m band score + 20 m band score + 40 m band score + 80 m band score + 160 m band score
