    90 Anniversary of the Swiss Amateur Radio Union Award

    AWARD AND SPECIAL TROPHY – “90 ANNIVERSARY OF THE SWISS AMATEUR RADIO UNION”

    In 2019 USKA – the Swiss Amateur Radio Union celebrates its 90th anniversary.
    To commemorate this significant milestone in USKA history, The Union establishes Anniversary Award Program. Awards available to ham radio operators and SWL across the globe.
    Awards are issued to amateur radio operators for making 2-way QSO with Swiss stations. Stations using HB90 and HB30 prefixes are giving twice the points, and considered as different correspondents to HB9 and HB3 stations with the same suffix.
    QSO made on all amateur radio bands from 160 meters to 70 cm are counted for the awards.
    Contacts with the same station on the same band on CW, Phone and Digital mode are counted separately.

    DATES

    From 1st January 2019 at 0000z to 31th December 2019 (2359z).

    AWARDS

    There are three different categories, depending on the number of HB30 and HB90 stations the requestor has contacted (or SWL reports in the case of SWLs).

    POINTS System

    QSO with HB2, HB3, HBx and HB9 = 1 point
    QSO with HB30 and HB90 = 2 point
    Each Swiss Canton counts as a multiplier, but only once, irrespective of band/mode (maximum 26 multipliers).
    Final score for the award – number of QSO points multiplied by number of cantons worked.
