2. Object To contact as many different Israeli amateur radio stations on as many bands, and from as many 'Areas', as possible in both modes, CW and SSB.
3. Contest Period Starting: Saturday 21 April 2001, 1800 UTC.
Ending: Sunday 22 April 2001, 1800 UTC.
4.1. - Single operator - MIX ( all bands)
- Single operator - SSB only ( all bands) New category
- Single operator - CW only ( all bands) New category
4.2. Multi operator - single transmitter - all bands
4.3. Short Wave Listeners
5. Modes SSB; CW; MIX (SSB and CW)

7. Exchange Worldwide stations send RS(T) + QSO number starting with 001. Israeli stations give RS(T) and 'Area'.
8. Valid Contact The same station may be contacted both in CW and SSB on each band. It is thus possible to make up to 12 valid QSO's with the same station if worked in CW and SSB on each band. Neither Cross-Mode or Cross- Band contacts are not permitted.

10. Multipliers One multiplier for each 'Area' worked once per band.
Note : A district 'Area'. See explanation below.
11. Scoring Multiply total number of QSO points by number of multipliers.
12. Logsheets A. Separate logs for each band and mode.
B. Each entry shall report: Time, call sign, RS(T) and QSO number sent, RS(T), 'Area' received and points.
C. SWL's shall report on Israeli stations only: Time, call sign, stations worked, RS(T), 'Area' sent and points.
13. Scoresheet A. A summary sheet shall list number of multiplier and points scored from each band worked. Total multiplier and points plus the computation of total score.
B. Declaration of compliance with rules of contest and own Radio Amateur License.
C. Entries must be postmarked not later than May 31,2001 and sent to: Contest Manager, Israel Amateur Radio Club, Box 17600, Tel Aviv 61176.

C. Certificates will be awarded to the top scorers in each country,state provided a minimum of 50 valid QSO's points have been reached.
15. Special Operation Israeli mobile or portable stations may move and change their location, during the contest, into 5 different 'Areas', restricted to an operating time of at least one full hour per 'Area'. The operation from each 'Area' gives that station the status of a different station with a another call, thus giving additional contest points and multipliers. To identify its different location / 'Area' those stations will change their callsigns by adding a number after their prefix. For example 4X4JU will use 4X41JU, 4X42JU...4X45JU or 4X6JS will use 4X61JS, 4X62JS etc.
EXPLAINING THE MULTIPLIERS
The square system:
The country is divided geographically, by the Survey Department of Israel, into a grid system resulting in squares of 10 by 10 Kilometers. North to South coordinates are identified by numbers, while West to East coordinates are identified by letters. The square is defined through the combination of the relevant coordinates i.e. E14.
The Administrative System:
The country is divided into 23 administrative regions. Here is a list of the Regions and their respective abbreviations:
- Akko AK
- Haifa HF
- Ramallah RA
- Yizreel YZ
- Ashqelon AS
- Hasharon HS
- Ramla RM
- Zefat ZF
- Azza AZ
- Hebron HB
- Rehovot RH
- Beer Sheva BS
- Jenin JN
- Shekhem SM
- Bethlehem BL
- Jerusalem JS
- Tel Aviv TA
- Hadera HD
- Kinneret KT
- Tulkarm TK
- Hagolan HG
- Petah Tiqwa PT
- Yarden YN
The 'Areas' (multipliers):
An 'Area' is made up from the 10 by 10 km. grid reference square and the region. For example: F15TA, E14TA, H08HF. The 'Area' is the basis for the "Holyland Award" and the "Holyland DX Contest". For that purpose the 'Area' must contain land and only that land or any waterway in that 'Area' is considered to be the 'Area'.
The region boundaries are drawn in an arbitrary manner so that often the 10 km grid reference square does cover more than one single region. For example, the square H08 lies partly in the region of Haifa, partly in the region of Hadera and partly in the region of Yizreel. As a result one may work, in the same square, three different Areas - H08HF, H08HD and H08YZ.
The Israel Survey Department has printed the following maps:
1. Country Road Map with a 1:250.000 scale, comprising 2 sheets.
2. Country Road Map with a 1:100.000 scale, comprising 6 sheets.
3. Region Map with a 1:250.000 scale, comprising 2 sheets.
Best 73's & Shalom,
