The multipliers are countries plus call areas for W, VE and JA and VK and continents. For single-operator stations there are time-limited 6-hour all-band and 30-hour all-band / single-band categories. Only multi-operator stations, single or multi-transmitter, can operate the full 48 hours.
For 24 hours over the same weekend the Russian DX Contest takes place from 1200 to 1200UTC. There are numerous entry categories, for single- and multi-band, single- and multi-mode, multi-op, various power levels, clubs, etc. An interesting aspect of this event is the possibility of submitting two single-band entries, eg 10m and 80m. Work everyone and send a signal report and serial number, but expect Russian stations to send you a signal report and a 2-letter Oblast code.
