EXCHANGE: Exchange with real RST (RS), RU-QRP member's number (not-members must send 'NM'), after the stroke send temperature identifier on your current position. Multi-operator who are RU-QRP members also send their member's number. Temperature identifier (F.R.O.S.T.) on the current working position for current QSO is choosen from the table below:

F - from -10С to -15C, FF - from -15C to -20C, FFF - below -20C, (F, FF, FFF considered different identifiers)

R - from -3С  to - 10С   
O - from -3C  to + 3С     
S - from +3С  to + 10С   
T - above +10С

Example: 'UR5LAM de RU4FB ur 579/240/T'.  Or: 'RK4FB de RX3ALL ur RST 579 my RUQRP nr 079/F'
You can also exchange with other information (like exact t, name, QTH, etc.) during the QSO. Temperature identifier can change as operation conditions change.

Duplicate QSOs allowed on different bands and with different modes, They are also allowed on the same band and with the same mode, if you or other station has new temperature identifier. To inform others about your new identifier, you can use a call like this: 'CQ MOROZ/S'.

POINTS: - For each successful QSO you will get a 1 point. If this QSO will be confirmed in other station's log, you will receive additional 1 point;
- For each new RU-QRP member's number - additionally 5 points regardless of the band;
- For each full F.R.O.S.T. set - additionally 20 points.

During the game insufficient letter from the F.R.O.S.T. set is possible to substitute from your current temperature identifier, but only if you already have no less then 10 QSOs with this letter.
Points for the each QSO according to temperature identifier on your working position:

F - below -10С               +4 points (FF: +8 points, FFF: +12 points)
R - from -3С  to - 10С     +3 points
O -  from -3C to +3С       +2 point
S - from + 3С  to + 10С   +1 point
T - above +10С              +0 points
