Awards & programmes

trophy-details-230pxOne 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!

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