YRARC Members QSO Awards Program

Thanks to Bob VE3WY for suggesting the resurrection of this program, introduced at 9pm on June 6, 2007. I've asked Publius to get a current membership list (first name and call) for each club member to keep track of their progress. Please join us on the 6 metre net Monday nights (and the D-RATS net immediately afterward) to get a head start.

The award is available to anyone. There are separate classes for members and non-members. Each group has the same objective, contacts with members on as many bands as possible.

  • Purpose: Work as many different York Region Amateur Radio Club members on as many different amateur bands as possible.
  • Contacts:Once per amateur band regardless of mode. Repeater contacts can be counted (no cross-band contacts)
  • Exchange: Callsign and Name
  • Eligibility: Must be a licensed amateur radio operator
  • Two classes of award
    • Member: Must be current (at the time of log submission) paid up member or Life Member of the York Region Amateur Radio Club
    • Non-member: Any amateur who is not a member of YRARC
  • Points: One point for each contact between club members
  • Amateur Bands: 25 different amateur bands available
  • Awards: Certificate for a minimum of 50 band-contacts. Endorsements available for additional multiples of 25 band contacts (e.g. 75, 100, 125, … )
  • Presentation of certificates at club meetings
  • Eligible contacts: From June 6, 2006 (9:00pm EDT)
  • Submissions: log books not required – Honour System. Submit log pages to Bob Morton, VE3WY at meetings or by email.
