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 basic principles of the new RSGB HF awards programme are to make the rules easy to understand and the attainment of awards progressive, challenging and achievable in a reasonable time frame.
