"Two Bear or not two Bear? That is the question" :-)
 


 Russian Hunt QRP marathon was founded by RU-QRP Club and takes place in two seasons: winter  and summer. Both seasons consists of 6 rounds which tooks place on Thursday   (February-March and August-September) from 18:00 till 19:00 UTC.
 
Hunt in both seasons used three bands: 80, 40 and 20 meters on frequencies: 14060 +/- 5 kHz, 7030 +/- 5 kHz, 3560 - 3580 kHz. We invite all licensed radioamateurs.

Ranks:
- QRP-"Hunters" (QRP up to 5 Watt)
- "Bears" (QRP up to 5 Watt)
 
In each round two QRP stations participate as "Bears". They are assigned from participants ("Hunters") who gathered more points in current season before incoming  round. "Bears" can only work on general call - "CQ  QRP de CALL BEAR pse k". All "Hunters" can communicate with "Bears" and other QRP "Hunters". General call for QRP "Hunters" - "CQ  HUNT de CALL QRP pse k". Contacts  with other non-participants in hunt are also allowed.
 
Exchange with real RST, your name, output power. Only one QSO is allowed with the same station in particular round. Duplicate QSOs are only allowed in other rounds.

Points:
- for QSO with "Bear" = 25 points
- for QSO with QRP-station = 3 points
- for QSO with QRO station = 1 point

Also, for each new invited participant you will get a 1 additional point.

Results calculated separately by ranks. Note that points gathered by the same participant in "Bear" role are summed with his points gathered in "Hunter" role. Separate "Bears" rating is also calculated.
