80 N – figure 2 and so on. Example – according to this
grid most of the Great Britain is located inside X4 «square»
and exchange from this part of the country is like 599001/X4. The map
shows grid for Europe and Asia as well as points sample for E4 square
Stations outside Europe and Asia use simple
designator – DX (599001/DX etc).

2 points, next to adjacent – 3 points etc. Each QSO DX station
scores 30 points. No
