CPPA - Croatian Prefixes PSK Award Series

The Croatian Prefixes PSK Award Series (CPPA) was devised by the European PSK Club and Croatian Digital Group (CDG) on 16th March 2008 (idea and awards design by 9A3ZC). This was to sponsor a series of PSK awards based on the Croatian radio amateur prefixes. The official award manager is Zdravko Todorovski 9A6ZT.

The CPPA award may be claimed by any EPC member eligible under these Rules who can produce evidence in a form of ADIF log of having contacted amateur stations from Croatia with various prefixes (9A1, 9A2, 9A3, 9A4, 9A5, 9A6, 9A7, 9A8, 9A9 and 9A0) by using any type of the Phase Shift Keying. The applicant should work all 10 prefixes mentioned above having worked each prefix 1 (one) time for CPPA Bronze Award, 2 (two) times for CPPA Silver Award, and 3 (three) times for CPPA Gold Award. Any special event station from Croatia with unique prefix can be used as a «Joker» to replace any one missing prefix. One missing prefix can be replaced for CPPA Bronze Award, two prefixes - for CPPA Silver Award, and three prefixes - for CPPA Gold Award. Contacts for CPPA are valid on or after 3rd January 2008.

QSL-cards are not required. Awards are issued to the person or club. The person or club can use any legal call sign. Contacts made from club stations or special event stations count to the credit of both the club and the operator. All stations must be operated in accordance with their licensing conditions. Contacts may be made from any location in the same DXCC country. Credit will be given for contacts made on any of the amateur bands below 30 MHz. Confirmations from Croatian SWL or DMS stations are not accepted for this award series.

The submission for credit of any altered or forged log extractions or, equally, bad behaviour on or off the air which is judged by the European PSK Club to bring a particular programme into disrepute may result in disqualification of the applicant from the CPPA Award Programme. The decision of the award manager on this and other matters of dispute will be finals.

All awards are issued FREE of charge in a high quality PDF format and sent via email to the applicants. Awards could be printed with the highest quality and with optimal performance by applicants themselves. CPPA awards are issued to the EPC members only.
