    This is a year-long dual award scheme open to SDARC (and invited clubs)
    Members only. It aims to encourage on-air operating, to have some
    competitive fun playing radio, to raise the profile of SDARC on the air and
    to reward members making consistent use of their radio gear. Go on, THIS
    year, why don’t YOU have a go!!

    To take part, please visit the official page which contains the button to
    log a QSO and also the real-time scores. Worked All Europe (2021) This
    page is also available from the main menu Worked All



    To work as many EUROPEAN COUNTRIES as you can during the Award period, to encourage some competitive fun playing radio, to raise the on-air profile
    of SDARC & to reward members making use of their radio gear.

    You will need to log and submit the full call worked but only the country counts. There are 70 countries to collect.


    QSOs may be made at any time from 1st APRIL to 30th NOVEMBER 2021.


    Log ALL QSOs under your own Full Call Sign. QSOs made using your SCC (Short Contest Call) are OK.


    ANY allocated UK Amateur Band from DC to Light.


    Contacts made where YOU used an RF signal on an Amateur band at your end.
    The propagation of your signal to the other end of the QSO could be a
    direct RF link (eg 20m or 6M)
    or could be RF through a repeater (including a Satellite)
    or even could be a mode that uses an Internet segment (eg DMR or Echolink).
    The ONLY other Limitation: No remote, automatic or unattended operation.


    You may operate from home or /M, /P or /A anywhere within a 25 mile radius
    of your QTHR.


    There are THREE Awards for 2021 according to how you operate:

    Award 1: CW or Phone QSOs made using RF propagation alone.
    Some Members may operate CW using a computer. This does NOT make those QSOs MGM.

    Award 2: MGM (Machine Generated Modes) QSOs (eg RTTY, PSKnn, JTnn, FTn … )

    Award 3: QSOs using RF at YOUR end but with which an Internet segment ‘assists’ (eg Echolink / DMR )


    Your Maximum TX Power is determined by your licence.

    Award 1: CW/Phone: You may choose a lower power category should you wish (10/50/100/400W)
    … e.g. An M1 or G4 may tactically choose 10, 50, 100 or 400W in the CW/Phone Award.

    BUT… Choose carefully as *** you must stick to your chosen power category all year. ***

    So, if you choose 10w in April, you can’t change to 100w halfway through

    Award 2: MGM: You can use any power and mode allowed by your licence and
    can change these at any time!

    Award 3: “Assisted”: Power unlikely to be a factor, so any conventional power within your licence terms is OK.


    Each Country worked counts as ONE point. Enter details using the
    appropriate online form at SDARC.net Just copy the details from your shack


    There will be SIX Winners’ Certificates overall :
    One for MGM, one for “Assisted” and 4 more for CW/Phone (10W, 50W, 100W, 400W).
    ONE member could win MGM, “Assisted” and one of the CW/Phone Awards. YOU can prevent that


    QSOs will not normally need validating but Judges reserve the right to
    request confirmation. The Judges’ decision in all matters is final. By entering, you agree that results & photos may be sent to Radcom & the SDARC website.
