First JS8 digi-only worldwide contest

I've decided to run (probably) the first JS8-only (digital mode) worldwide contest on CB band. It will be run in 2 phases, trial run (27th Dec) and the "real thing" (TBA). The point here is surprisingly, not to make the most QSOs, but to ragchew, with as many as 10 exchanges counted towards your point tally.
I made a PDF file explaining the whole thing in detail (see attached)

If you wish to participate in the trial run, register here:

1st phase is done primarily to test CONDX for the "real thing"

WHEN: 27th December 2020, on 25th C-band channel, 27245kHz, USB
WHERE: Worldwide, with Europe as centre of activity
FREQ: 27245kHz, with eventual QSY down by 5 or 10kHz in case of QRM

Optional: If you wish to join the relay at the end - it'd be helpful to have you in 'JS8 on 11m' Telegram group, for easier coordination if it gets stuck somewhere -
