The Award Classes and required standards to be achieved are summarised in the following page.

Please refer to the Period of Operation section on this page for details of the event organisation.

A list of the qualifying Marconi stations is given at the Award Stations page.

Award Claims

Your Award claim should state the Award Category claimed, and must be made in writing giving a FULL extract of your log together with your callsign and address (often forgotten !). The log extract may be a certified copy of the original log or a certified computer print out. Ideally, another amateur should certify that your log extract represents a true copy of the original log entries: if no other amateur is available, an adult signatory will be accepted. Please address your claim to:
