VHF/UHF Awards


One of the most exciting facets of Amateur Radio operating is awards chasing. 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.

 

50MHz Award (6m)
There are three awards for the 50MHz (6m) band which to some extent are dependent on the special propagation modes that can be experienced within this band.

VHF Squares and Countries Awards
These awards cover 70MHz (4m), 144MHz (2m) and 432MHz (70cm).  The title of each award gives the number of locator squares and countries needed to qualify for the award.  For example, to obtain the 144MHz 40/10 award you must have confirmation of contact with 40 locator squares and 10 countries on 144MHz.  Each award application will be issued a certificate.
