The Centenary Challenge was devised to recognise those amateurs who made the most contacts with the Gx100RSGB Centenary Station by region/band. Certificates will be sent to the lead and runner up stations up in overall total, HF and VHF/UHF in each UK licence category, as well as the lead and runner up station in each continent for the “rest of the world”. The names and call signs of the winners will be published on 1 February 2014.
In mid-February, an online web form will be available for stations who were ranked within the top 200 places in either the UK or “Rest of the World” Leaderboards to download a Centenary Challenge certificate with their name, call sign and rank position. We are currently exploring means of identifying the lead stations in DXCC entities, USA States and call areas in Commonwealth Countries so that we can offer certificates to recognise their achievement.
Additionally, certificates will be sent to the leading and runner up stations who participated in the GR2HQ’s Team stations challenge – Gx100C.
The RSGB Centenary Award
The Centenary Award was created to stimulate operating through the Centenary year and introduce amateurs to some of the RSGB operating awards. Separate awards are available for HF and VHF/UHF operating, and each is offered at a Basic and Gold level of achievement. For each award the bulk of the qualifying contacts are made up from general contacts, but each award requires a minimum number of contacts with the Centenary station on a region/band basis.
Further information on the Centenary Award can be found by following this link. All are reminded that to qualify for being considered for the Special Commemorative Plaque you will need to have submitted your Award application by 23:59 UTC on 31 January 2014, see this link for further information.
