EPC-CDG AWARDS

 

EPC CDG SERIES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The EPC Croatian Award Series was devised by the Croatian Section of the European PSK Club (EPC-CRO) in the Radio Club of Zagreb on 25th November 2007 ( idea and awards design by 9A3ZC). This was to sponsor a series of PSK awards based on the EPC-CRO membership and administrative geography of Croatia. Any EPC-CRO award may be claimed by any licensed radio amateur, club station or SWL/DMS eligible under these rules who can produce evidence of having contacted/monitored Croatian EPC members by using PSK modes. All awards can be claimed as Activated as well as Worked. PSK contacts are valid with any stations from Croatia on or after 10th June 2006.

There are eight EPC-CRO Awards at the moment: the EPC-CRO series in five classes BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD, PLATINUM and DIAMOND; and three Regional awards EPC-CRO EAST, EPC-CRO NORTH and EPC-CRO SOUTH. 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 the EPC-CRO SWL or DMS stations are accepted as confirmed contacts.

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 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. EPC-CRO awards are issued to the EPC members only. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For the purposes of the award, the continental areas are: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania (including Australia), and South America.

Russia and Kazakhstan have both European (western) and Asian (eastern) parts. The Turkish city Istanbul lies in both Europe and Asia; effectively making it a transcontinental city.

These areas are: UA9A (ER53) - Chelyabinskaya Oblast (West of River Ural and Ural Range), UA9F (ER54) - Permskaya Oblast, UA9G (ER55) - Komi-Permyatsky AO, UA9S (ER56) - Orenburgskaya Oblast (West of River Ural), UA9W (ER57) - Bashkortostan (West of River Ural and Ural Range), UA9X (ER58) - Komi, UN7I (EK01) - Aqtobe Oblast (West of River Emba and Mugodzhary Range), UN7M (EK02) - West Kazakhstan (Batys Qazaqstan) Oblast and UN7O (EK03) - Atyrau Oblast (Northwest of River Emba).
 

The CDG WAC award is earned by submission of ADIF log of two-way digital amateur radio contacts using any combination of HF (on 5 bands: 3.5, 7, 14, 21 and 28 MHz; WARC bands:10, 18 and 24 MHz; including 50MHz) radio bands. Applicant's ADIF log must be submitted to qualify. CDG WAC awards may be claimed by SWL/DMS stations as well. CDG or EPC membership is required for the award applicants. All contacts must be made on digital modes (All modes will be valid excerpt CW and PHONIE/ SSB, FM, AM/) only since 10th june 2006.
 

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 54 MHz. Confirmations from the CDG and EPC Short Wave Listeners and Digital Monitoring Stations are accepted as confirmed contacts. All stations contacted must be "land based stations". Contacts with ships and boats, anchored or underway, and airborne aircraft, cannot be counted. For the purposes of this award, remote control operating points must also be land based.

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 Croatian Digital Group and European PSK Club to bring a particular programme into disrepute may result in disqualification of the applicant from the CDG Award Programme. The decision of the award manager on this and other matters of dispute will be finals.
