EXCHANGE: Stations outside South Dakota send signal report and state, province or DXCC country. South Dakota stations send signal report and county.

QSO POINTS: Phone contacts are worth 1 point. CW and digital contacts are worth 2 points. 

MULTIPLIERS: Stations outside South Dakota multiply QSO points by total South Dakota counties worked. Stations inside South Dakota multiply QSO points by the total of the South Dakota counties worked, US States, Provinces and DXCC countries. South Dakota counties may only be used ONCE as a multiplier. 

CLASSES: Fixed station and rover

MAXIMUM POWER: High power (greater than 150 watts), Low power (150 watts or less) and QRP (5 watts or less)

MOBILES: South Dakota Mobile (Rover) stations are considered a new contact each time they change counties. County line contacts will count as multiple contacts for both, but must be logged separately. 

FINAL SCORE CALULATION: QSO points X Multipliers = Total + Bonus = Grand Total (Example 50 contacts SSB x 20 counties = 1,000 points + 100 bonus = 1,100 points grand total)
