1.     Award Certificates for working GR2HQ

Individual stations that contact GR2HQ on up to 12 band/mode slots will also be eligible for a special certificate issued by the GR2HQ team.           

This is the 12th year that these award certificates have been available.

Bronze  award certificate :        GR2HQ on three, four or five band/modes Silver award certificate :           GR2HQ on six, seven or eight band/modes Gold award certificate :            GR2HQ on nine, ten or eleven band/modes Platinum award certificate :     GR2HQ on all  twelve band/modes

2.   Special Platinum award certificates will be awarded to the  first station in the U.K. and the  first station outside the U.K. to work GR2HQ on all 12 band/modes  in the shortest possible time.  (This time will be measured from the 1st QSO with GR2HQ to the 12th QSO with GR2HQ, as logged in the GR2HQ logfile)

3.   Also, Special Platinum award certificates will be awarded to every station who works GR2HQ on all 12 band/modes  within a 30 minute period (again measured from the QSO times in the GR2HQ logfile)  You choose when the 30 minute period is, within the 24 hours - an interesting challenge !

Note - inter-U.K. propagation conditions may make it difficult at times for GR2HQ stations to hear U.K. callers - please persevere when calling. The GR2HQ station will also be able to tell you the working frequencies of the GR2HQ stations on the other bands and modes - just ask.
