Selv om jeg ikke deltager i jule- og nytårstesterne, så vil jeg gerne bidrage lidt omkring prefix – eller hvad det ellers skal hedde.

Som Henning helt korrekt skriver, så bruges benævnelsen prefix som multiplier i verdens næststørste contest CQWW WPX. Fra reglerne der står der:

1. A PREFIX is the letter/numeral combination which forms the first part of the amateur call. Examples: N8, W8, WD8, HG1, HG19, KC2, OE2, OE25, LY1000, etc. Any difference in the numbering, lettering, or order of same shall count as a separate prefix.

Og ser prefix forkert ud i reglerne, så kan I jo kigge på SAC contesterne. Her står der:

8.2 For non-Scandinavian stations:

Each worked prefix-number (Ø-9) in each Scandinavian DXCC entity is valid for one multiplier for each band (e.g. SI3, SK3, SL3, SM3, 7S3, and 8S3 are all in ONE district and count for ONE (1) multiplier on each band).
Stations without a prefix number count for the 10th area (e.g., LA/G3XYZ counts for LAØ), and those with two or more prefix numbers counts for the area indicated by the first number (e.g., OZ150A counts for OZ1).

Og så for at definere et kaldesignal, så har Wikipedia en version: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_call_signs#General_formats

P – prefix character (letter or numeral, subject to exclusions below). Prefixes can be formed using one-letter, two-letters, a digit and a letter, a letter and a digit, or in rare cases a digit and two letters. There is no ITU allocation of digit-only prefixes. Letter-digit-letter prefixes are possible but there are no known cases of them being issued by national bodies.
N – a single numeral which separates prefix from suffix (any digit from 0 to 9). Often a cross-hatched Ø is used for the numeral zero to distinguish it from the letter O.
S – suffix character (letter or numeral, last character must be a letter). Digits are in practise used sparingly in suffixes and almost always for special events. This avoids confusion with separating numerals and digits in prefixes in regularly issued call signs.

Der er længe til Jul, så mon ikke I bliver enige inden?
