    The German Amateur Radio Club DARC issues this award in 2024 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Amateur Radio legislation in Germany. Said law was passed in the American and British Bizone on 4 March 1949 and came into force on 23 March 1949, before even West Germany’s Basic Law. At that point in time, it was the only post-war law regulating telecommunications.
    Radio amateurs are required to contact 75 German stations between 1 March and 30 April in 2024. A contact with one of the special event stations DP75AFUG, DL75AFUG or DL75AFUV is obligatory. Furthermore, all 24 regional districts of the DARC must be represented in the required 75 contacts.

    Rules apply in a similar fashion to Short Wave Listeners. They are required to send their complete relevant log extract to the award manager via email.

    Applications from radio amateurs are handled through the DCL. All bands covered by the applicant’s operating permit may be used. Upon request, awards are issued in separate numbering sequences based on transmitting modes. The award will be made available through the DCL as a downloadable .pdf document. For this process it is necessary that applicants upload to the DCL their log containing relevant contacts. The fee for the award is 3 Euro. Applications are possible until 30 September 2024.
