  QRP-AFIELD Rule Interpretation :
  ---------------------------------

Submit 1 log entry for each station.

A station is defined as 1 transmitter on the air at one time.
You can have 5 stations with different callsigns running at one
time. Submit one entry per station.

A station can operate on many bands, and even have many operators,
- but not at the same time.

The rules were set up to KIS, while maximizing
the quantity of stations on the air.
