Awards & Programmes

One of the most exciting facets of Amateur Radio operating is awards chasing. It’s a major motivating force of so many QSOs that occur on the bands day after day. So transform those QSOs into beautiful certificates or plaques for your shack wall!

Aside from the fun of operating itself, awards chasing is also a good way to get maximum performance from your station, become familiar with propagation, and even learn about the geography, history or culture of places near and far.

The RSGB have a number of award programmes for HF, VHF and the Society’s major international award programme—Islands On The Air

Please note that the Awards Manager John Dunnington G3LZQ is currently unwell and there may be a delay in processing award applications .  Charles Wilmott, M0OXO has kindly agreed to provide temporary support to the programme and will respond to all award emails.
