Scores will be normalised for each section in each session as follows.
Score for each section/session = ((number of entrants+1)-(position of entrant))*1000/(number of entrants)

Any entries with a zero score will be given a zero normalised score and will not be included in the count of the number of entrants in that section/band for the purposes of calculating other normalised scores.


It is impossible for you to determine your best sessions without knowing everyone else's scores, so please submit your logs and scores from all sessions in which you were active and allow the adjudicator to calculate your best sessions.
UKACMGM Modes: FT8

A QSO between stations in the same large Locator Square will count for 50 points. Stations taking part in the contest must not simultaneously TX on more than one frequency and/or on more than one FT8 channel. Please read the guidelines for the use of MGM in RSGB contests here
