licensing conditions. Contacts may be made from any location in the
same DXCC country. Credit will be given for contacts made on any of the
amateur bands below 30 MHz. Confirmations from the EPC Short Wave

equally, bad behaviour on or off the air which is judged by the
European PSK Club to bring a particular programme into disrepute may
result in disqualification of the applicant from the Award Programme.
The decision of the award manager on this and other matters of dispute
will be finals.
All awards are issued FREE of
charge in a high quality PDF format and sent via email to the
applicants. Awards could be printed then with the highest quality and
with optimal performance by applicants themselves. If you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Since 1st June 2008 all claims for the EPC awards should be made using our UltimateEPC Award Management Software

when claiming for higher classes of awards. The award manager will keep
all your records in our database. Please make sure before you submit
your ADIF log that you have checked it with the appropriate software.
