In order to minimize load on the CQ frequencies, it is recommended to use IARU Region 1 procedures (http://www.vhfdx.de/ms_howto.pdf) and BCC CQ-QSY system ( "CQ 368" or "CQ 68"means that CQ-calling station is listening on 144.368 MHz and the answering station should TX/RX on 144.368, where the QSO will actually take place).
In HSCW, if necessary, it is allowed to use extended letter system.
It is allowed to use DX-Cluster or other open chats for arranging skeds.

RECOMMENDED FREQUENCIES
For CQ in FSK441: 144.370 and 144.350 MHz
For CQ in SSB: 144.200 MHz
