Objective:
For amateurs in the US and Canada (and their possessions) to work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees x 1 degree Maidenhead grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Stations outside the US & Canada (and their possessions) may only work stations in the US (and its posessions) and Canada.

Stations in KH0-9, KL7 & KP1-KP5, CY9 and CY0 count as W/VE stations and can be worked by DX stations for contest credit.

Log Submission Deadline:
All submissions must be emailed or postmarked no later than 0300z Wednesday, October 14, 2015. Email logs to septembervhf@arrl.org

Awards:
Certificates will be awarded in the following categories: – Top Single Operator High and Single Operator Low power in each ARRL/RAC Section. – Top Single Operator High and Single Operator Low power on each band (50, 144, 222, 432, 902, 1296 and 2304-and-up categories) in each ARRL/RAC Section where significant effort or competition is evident. (Note: Since the highest score per band will be the award winner for that band, an entrant may win a certificate with additional single-band endorsements.) For example, if KA1RWY has the highest single-operator low-power all-band score in the CT Section and her 50- and 222-MHz scores are higher than any other CT single operator’s, she will earn a certificate for being the single-operator Section leader and endorsements for 50 and 222 MHz. – Top Single Operator Portable in each ARRL/RAC Section where significant effort or competition is evident. (Single Operator Portable entries are not eligible for single-band awards.) – Top rover in each ARRL Division and Canada where significant effort or competition is evident.

(Multioperator entries are not eligible for single-band awards.) – Top limited multi-operator in each ARRL/RAC Section where significant effort or competition is evident.
