The points system is so structured as to encourage portable operation, especially moveable stations. The rule structure is very close to that formulated by the founder of the contest idea: Eddie ZS6BNE. This contest will take place at the same time in South Africa (the Nation from which the idea originated), as it will here in the Americas.
